The early childhood education fee pertains to the user of the service, i.e. the child attending early childhood education and their parents or other guardians living in the shared household. The invoice is only delivered to the address at which the child is living with their guardian(s).

Please note! Client fees for spring 2020

The government recommendations concerning compensations for early childhood education client fees expired on 13 May, after which client fees have been determined based on the Act on Client Fees in Early Childhood Education and Care:

The fee for May is 50% of the fee for the entire month, even if the child did not attend early childhood education, playground activities or after-school activities at all in May. In these cases, the fee for the time period of 1–13 May 2020 has been compensated by separate decision in accordance with the government recommendation. Fees will be determined according to the Act on Client Fees in Early Childhood Education and Care as usual after 14 May, see Effects of absences on the early childhood education fee.
