Report your child's summer holidays and need for emergency care by 15 May

Reduced services during the summer period 1 June–31 August 2022

Day care centres and family day care serve families throughout the summer. If necessary, daycare centres can combine their activities. However, the activities are organised in such a way that children and staff can operate in loose spaces and there is sufficient space for all small groups. In family day care, operations have been reduced due to nurses' holidays. Private service providers inform their customer families about their unit's opening hours exemptions.

Continuous absence of more than six weeks between 1. June and 31. August 2021 

If you organise the care for your child between 1 June and 31 August 2022 yourself for at least six consecutive weeks, no day care fees will be charged for the period of absence. We hope that you will also announce your child´s shorter holidays. Note! The absence time does not entitle Kela to home care allowance.  

Binding absences of more than six weeks will be reported electronically from 1 May to 15 May. between 2022 at www.ouka.fi/ph-asiointi.  N.B! Please report the child's daylight saving time absences only at the aforementioned time, so that the information is stored correctly in the daycare centres' diaries. Absences notified after this date will not entitle you to a discount.  Changes into notified absences that will give discounts for the summer period can beaccepted only for special reasons. These include the parent(s) being laid off or their employment terminated, on sick leave or if their annual holiday time changes because of actions of their employer. You need to provide written proof of the above-mentioned changes to the day care centre.  

Absence allowances and customer charges

July is automatically free of charge for families where the child's early childhood education and care started before the end of August 2021. July is also free of charge when the child has started after 1 September 2021 and the child does not need summer emergency services. More information on early childhood education fees  can be found on the customer fees for early childhood education and care page.
