Child Care and Schools
In general, children stay at home until the age of 1.5 years. Until then families receive the parental benefit and one of the parents can stay home. Most day-care centres do not accept children younger than 1 year.
Children under the age of 3 attend day nurseries (mostly private) and the age of 3-7 nursery schools (municipal or private). Children start school at the age of 7.
