CHILDCARE consortium

The research project "Finnish Childcare Policies: In/Equality in Focus" (CHILDCARE) started in 2015. The project is funded by the Strategic Research Council (SRC) at the Academy of Finland and is conducted by the University of Tampere, in collaboration with the University of the University of Jyväskylä and National Institute of Health and Welfare. PI of the consortium is Professor Maarit Alasuutari from the University of Jyväskylä. Professor Kirsti Karila is working as PI of one subproject.

The focus of the project is in Finnish childcare policies: in the provision of early childhood education and care, and in care allowances that support home and informal care as well as private childcare. The dualistic model is often considered as securing equality between families, although due to municipal independence, childcare systems are increasingly diverse.

The project will examine how the municipal childcare systems condition parental childcare decisions, and thereby, scrutinise the potential sources of inequality in the systems. The focus is e.g. on possible inequalities between regions and families, and in children's early education trajectories and well-being. The research applies multiple methodologies.

It will be carried out in collaboration with 10 municipalities that provide different combinations of childcare services and cash benefits. The research will provide tangible models and ideas about how to support equality in Finnish childcare locally and nationally.
