eVaka - electronic services

Electronic eVaka will be introduced in early childhood education and care in Oulu from 5 October onwards

From 5.10., the electronic eVaka system will be introduced in early childhood education and care in Oulu - all municipal and private daycare centres and family day care.

With eVaka you can

  • apply for a place in early childhood education, preschool and clubbing for your child

  • report income data or give consent to the highest client fee

  • report your child's early childhood education hours and absences

  • terminate a place in early childhood education and care

  • receive newsletters on early childhood education and care

  • communicate with early childhood education staff

  • review the child's early childhood education plan

Creating an account on eVaka

The first time, you will have to log in to the eVaka system with strong identification (online banking codes or a mobile certificate). To make daily transactions easier, you can create your own user account. However, some of eVaka's services require strong authentication.

There is no mobile application for the eVaka system that can be installed separately. The system works on mobile devices and other computers, automatically adapting to different screen sizes and shapes. After logging in to the system, you can save the view of the browser program to the Home screen or home screen of your mobile device (there are device-specific differences in this procedure). This makes it easy to use eVaka like a mobile app.

Electronic service

Decisions made in eVaka (early childhood education and care, service voucher, client fee decision) will be sent as electronic notification suomi.fi messages to the service. This requires the introduction of the service. More information about the Suomi.fi Messages service.

If you do not enable the Suomi.fi-messages service, decisions will be sent by letter. We recommend that you start using the service.
