Client fees of early childhood education and care are based on the Act on Client Fees in Early Childhood Education and Care. The fee is based on the size and gross income of the family as well as the amount of early childhood education and care needed. The client fees will be calculated as percentages of the family’s gross income.

When calculating the client fee, the income limit defined in the Act on Client Fees in Early Childhood Education and Care will be deducted from the family’s gross income. Then, 10.7% of the income exceeding this income limit will be counted as the client fee of early childhood education until the end of July, 2022. The highest fee charged for the family’s youngest child is €288 per month, and then 40% of the full-time care fee of the youngest child for the second child (at most €115 per month) and 20% for the other children in the family (at most €58 per month).

From the beginning of August, 2022, the index increase will change the fees as follows: The highest fee charged for the family’s youngest child is €295 per month, and then 40% of the full-time care fee of the youngest child for the second child (at most €118 per month) and 20% for the other children in the family (at most €59 per month).

The client fee is charged maximum of 11 months per year (1.8.-31.7.). July is free of charge provided that the child´s early childhood education has begun at the latest on on September of the preceding year. The family must inform the authorities if the child has participated in early childhood education of another municipality.

Summer season fees: if the child started in early childhood education and care at the latest by 30 September, July will be free-of-charge for the guardians. If the children started in early childhood education and care after this date, a half a month’s fee will also be charged for July. In such cases, the child must be absent from the early childhood education and care for the whole calendar month even if the month starts in the middle of the week.

If the child is in early childhood education and care even for one day in July, the fee for the month will be charged in full.

If the child is at least two months away from early childhood education and care during the summer season, a care place guarantee can be applied.
