The impact of expanding free pre-school education

The study on free pre-school education for 5-year-olds in the Tampere metropolitan area described the current state of pre-school education in the region, assessed and developed the comparability of municipal pre-school education and financial data, and assessed the conditions for organising a free (compulsory) pre-school education for five-year-olds in the municipalities of the Tampere metropolitan area. In addition, the regional themes of co-operation in the organisation of pre-school education were described.
