Fees for attendance and registration

It is possible to choose the child’s attendance either by session based, by half time or full time based schedule. This means that you can book your child’s attendance between 2 to 10 sessions per week. Fees are based on these bookings.

Our fees from August 2022 are as follows. The amounts shown below are customer fees with the private daycare allowance deducted.

To change a child’s attendance one must give the school a minimum of one calendar month notice and it should be done on a given adjustment form that can be found on the ICEC website under contacts.

Payments, attendance, meals and insurance

Payments are paid directly to the school’s bank account according to the invoice provided at the beginning of each calendar month and you will receive your email by email. If the invoice is not paid by the due date a reminder will be sent.

The monthly payments are paid every month, even during the summer. For summer holidays there is a small deduction - please see the separate page "summer fees". The schools’ opening times are shown in each school's calendar. There is no deduction for private holidays.

If your child is leaving the school, you must give at least one full calendar month notice.

No refund is given for missed attendance (like the private holidays mentioned above or sickness).

The fee includes all meals. 

All children are fully insured during school hours.

Practice in “yksityisenhoidontuki”

In some cases parents may receive support called “yksityisenhoidontuki” and/or “kuntalisä”. This is financial support that the Finnish Kansaneläkelaitos (Kela) pays the daycare service provider as part of a child’s monthly fee. This can only be received by those parents who apply for it. Applications must be made to the Kansaneläkelaitos (Kela) office.

You will receive exact details about how to apply from your school manager. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.S
