The events are planned to suit the child's level of development, and they support the well-being of the whole family. Events are held for children for seven years, from the year of birth to the school start year.

If the child lives in Helsinki and was born in 2020 or later, you can register them to Culture kids program at The culture sponsor is determined by the year of birth of the child. Those born in different years have their own cultural actors as sponsors. Children born in 2023 are sponsored by the Museum of Finnish Architecture, the Design Museum, the Helsinki City Museum, the National Museum of Finland, the Finnish Society for Cultural Heritage Education and the Helsinki University Museum. The Culture kids service is managed by the City of Helsinki's Culture and Leisure Division and is supported by the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation.
