Playschool Care Fee

The monthly fee depends on the family situation. The client fee (parents' contribution) for a Tuusula family from the playschool is up to €120 per month per child (1.11.2020 ->), where the family is entitled to KELA's family allowances and daycare hours are less than 25 hours a week. For full-time care the client fee is up to €240 per month (1.11.2020 ->) plus food fees (3,60 per lunch).

The earnings-related KELA benefit and the sibling benefit granted by the municipality of Tuusula reduce the amount.

Pikkulukkari has been added to the City of Järvenpää Service Voucher Day Care Centre as of May 1, 2019. This makes it easier for the families of Järvenpää to atend.

For families from outside Tuusula or Järvenpää, the playschool's client fee is initially limited to a maximum of €120 per month (less than 25 hours per week), and we will find out the private care support model used by the family municipality.
