Early Childhood Education

metsäretki

The customer fee for early childhood education is a fixed monthly fee that is determined by a family’s income, need for care, and number of persons in the family. The fee will be charged up to 11 months during term. The month of July is free of charge provided that it is the 12th invoiced month, meaning that the child’s early childhood education would have started the previous August.

Monthly fees will be charged afterwards. Fees can be collected by way of enforcement without court rulings or decisions.

Income declaration

To define the fee the family must provide their income statement not later than two (2) weeks after the start of early childhood education. If the family does not declare their income, the highest fee will apply.

To define applying fees, income statements will be checked yearly at the beginning of the term and new fees will be determined. The fee will also be reviewed in case the family’s income changes significantly, the family’s circumstances change, the fee turns out being incorrect, or the child’s need for early childhood education changes.

Please inform the City of Kajaani’s Office for Early Childhood Education if any changes take place in the family income or circumstances using the following address: Kajaanin kaupunki, Varhaiskasvatus, Pohjolankatu 13, 87100 Kajaani. (City of Kajaani, Early Childhood Education)

The highest full-time early childhood education fee per child can be up to 289 euros per month and the lowest 27 euros per month.
