All children must be TOILET TRAINED and over 3 years old when they start at the kindergarten unless they will be attending the 2 year olds group at Töölö2, in which case this restriction does not apply. The kindergarten reserves the right to refuse admittance if necessary; we also reserve the right to ask parents to find alternative care if we are unable to meet the needs of the child. When your child's application has been accepted and you are offered a place at the kindergarten, a registration fee is payable, together with a deposit equivalent to the monthly fee minus KELA support. This deposit is held until the end of the school year (July) when it is then used as that month’s fee (so you will not receive a separate bill for July as it has, in effect, been prepaid). ENROLLMENT CAN ONLY BE CONFIRMED WHEN THE DEPOSIT AND REGISTRATION FEE HAS BEEN PAID. This total amount is non-refundable in the event of cancellation or if your child leaves before the end of the school year. Deposits for the following kindergarten year are collected each March.
The monthly fee is due regardless of the number of days in a month, absenteeism due to illness or additional vacations, inclement weather or school or statutory holidays. Payments are due on the 5th day of each month. If your child has an illness that lasts longer than a month, the fee for that month may be refunded on production of an appropriate doctor's certificate.
If for some reason it becomes necessary to withdraw your child from the school, a minimum notice of TWO FULL CALENDAR MONTHs is required or you must pay two month's fee in lieu of notice.
The teachers have full educational responsibility and the schools educational policies are designed according to their educational principals. Additional funds may be collected during the school year for educational trips. This amount should not exceed 50e per term.
