The per-child co-payments for places in kindergartens for the period 2022-2023:

What is covered by the price of a place in the kindergarten?

The price of a place at the kindergarten covers everything related to the activities of the kindergarten; supplies, food, excursions and sports outside the kindergarten.

The only separate cost is the optional Juvenalia music class, which is held weekly in our kindergartens. Juvenalia separately invoices the families of the children who participate in it each semester.

How is the total price of a kindergarten place calculated?

Clients living in Espoo are entitled to the following subsidies from the City of Espoo: Kela private care allowance (incl. city supplement), Viskari allowance (for 5-year-olds), free pre-school education allowance and sibling allowance. Some of these subsidies are automatically taken into account in the child's kindergarten fees, while others must be applied for by the family itself.

The total price per child for a day-care place is made up of the following components:

  1. family co-payment = monthly childcare fee
  2. private day care allowance from KELA
  3. and any other subsidies received by the family.

The higher the share of subsidies in the total price, the lower the family's co-payment. The co-payment is limited to the maximum co-payment for the term of office, adjusted annually.

The Association's Board of Directors, elected by the parents of the families concerned, determines the prices of the kindergarten places each year in May-June for the next new term, which begins in August.
