The new Early Childhood Education Act has been approved in Parliament
On 27 June 2018, the Finnish Parliament approved a new Early Childhood Education Act, which came into force on September 1st, 2018. The new law strengthens the quality of early childhood education by raising staff training levels and clarifying job titles. The best interests of the child are improved, and the child's interest must be taken into account by educators when designing and organising early education. The child must also be protected from violence, bullying and harassment.
