Children and youths

Education is divided into two branches: Early childhood education (under 7-year-olds) and youth work. The local manager of early childhood education is the senior early childhood education instructor, and the local manager of the youth team is the youth secretary. The responsible chaplain is responsible for the entire education team.

More information about early childhood education, i.e. activities aimed for children and families with children can be found in Finnish hereLinkki avautuu uudessa välilehdessä.

Pre-youth work operates with 7-14-year-olds. Our operations involve various clubs at different parish locations around Hyvinkää, as well as camp activities for children and parents during the weekends and public holidays.
