Client Fee Form



Impact of joint custody on the client fee

If the guardians of the child reside at different addresses but the child is provided with early childhood education in only one municipality, the fee is based on the income of the family with whom the child is living according to the Finnish Population Information System.

The fee is determined according to the guardian’s current family size and gross income and the child’s agreed day care hours. The child’s guardians must mutually agree on how the invoice for the child’s early childhood education is paid.
