At Pilke, we find it important to welcome every child and family to our daycare centres.
Pilke applies the three-step support model of development and learning. It provides our personnel with tools for identifying the child’s need for support and for implementing the support in practice. Pilke employs special education teachers in early childhood education and care who provide consultation in support matters at our units. If required, Pilke purchases special education services from external providers.
Private daycare providers typically support and supplement the municipal services. Private daycare centres often provide early childhood education services within the framework conditions set by the municipal authorities. If a municipality identifies the need to purchase services for special support children from the private sector, a private daycare centre may provide them. However, children who need special support are often placed in municipal daycare centres. As municipal practices may vary, you should discuss the matter with the manager of the Pilke daycare centre and the municipal early childhood education service guidance. The child’s best interests are the priority.
Pilke has a working group for development and learning support. It monitors Pilke units’ needs for special support and related training and develops our national support services.
