Early childhood education

Early childhood education

Are you a warm-hearted individual and a talented childcare worker? An early childhood pedagogical professional who can keep the wheels of a kindergarten spinning? 


What is it like to work as a childcare worker?

We offer you open shifts at our customers' daycare facilities. Work shifts take place on weekdays between 07:00 and 17:00 and the work is paid according to TES. You can take shifts according to your schedule and arrange your work day just the way you want. The biggest advantage of temporary work is definitely versatility and the opportunity to work at a time that suits you!

Your workplaces are high-quality, stimulating and responsible private daycare centers around Finland. In our customers' daycare centers, the focus is on the children, with genuine care. The work communities of daycare centers are functional and the colleagues are encouraging. As a childcare worker, you direct the day's activities, you are present to the children and you boldly throw yourself into the varied situations typical of a daycare environment.


What kind of childcare workers are we looking for?

• We are proud that our childcare workers are cheerful and self-initiated with a positive attitude
• They have previous experience in childcare or appropriate training in the field and are fluent Finnish
• We require those working with children to have a criminal background check or the readiness to obtain one before starting work
• Good communication skills and a genuine desire to work in the field of early childhood education guarantee enjoyment at work.


Through us, you can find employment in the following positions:
  • Childcare worker
  • Day-care assistant
  • Early childhood teacher
  • Food service employee


Do you have work experience with children and are you looking for flexible work alongside your studies, or are you an experienced early childhood education professional and applying for a longer-term job? Folka's HR team collaborates with different kindergartens and we are constantly growing our employee pool. Let's create a safe and child-centred environment for growth and learning together in day-care centres!
