Why was Touhula chosen as a partner for the City of Turku?

Cooperation with Touhula has been very smooth all along. The Touhula daycare centres are being built as agreed and on schedule. Touhula is also investing in construction and this way we’re getting new daycare premises in the city.

How long have you been working together with Touhula?

Since 2014, when the first Touhula daycare centre was opened in Nättinummi in Turku.

What are your experiences of Touhula?

We want to provide the best possible service for families with children in Turku when it comes to daycare, which is why the needs-based approach and cooperation with us was important. The needs of our municipal inhabitants have been at the centre of activities all along.

What is the role of a private daycare centre in the municipal daycare offering in Turku?

In 2012 we made a decision to grow the share of private offering in daycare. There have been very good private service providers available, and we’ve managed to reach our goals on schedule.

How important do you think it is for the customers that the fees are the same for both municipal and private daycare?

I see this as a good thing. It provides equality for the inhabitants and makes private daycare a viable option for families. We pull together for the benefit of our residents!
