Terms and Conditions
1. The Montessori Infant Community Oy (hereafter referred to as “the school”) follows the work and holiday schedule laid down in our calendar located on our website here.
2. Students, their parents/guardians are bound by the rules and regulations of the school in effect and outlined in the latest edition of the parents’ guide located here. Rules, regulations and policies may be amended at any time.
3. A registration fee of 150 euro together with a deposit equivalent to the monthly fee minus KELA support (in case you are eligible for Kela support) is payable to the school's account in Nordea FI21 1228 3000 0200 63 when your registration has been confirmed. 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 be confirmed when the deposit and the registration fee has been paid. The deposit is refundable if your child leaves the school within the first month of attendance. If your child attends more than one month, the deposit is non-refundable. The registration fee is non-refundable.
Deposits for the following school year are collected each March and are refunded if a child leaves the school within the first month of attendance from the beginning of the school year. The school year ends on 31.07. and the monthly fee (both parents’ part and Kela support) is due in July even though the school is on holiday, so parents are paying 12 months a year. Payment of the registration fee and the deposit guarantees your child’s place. By paying them parents/guardians are confirming that they have agreed with the school’s terms and conditions and the school’s policies defined in the latest edition of parents’ guide. If the registration fee and the deposit has not been paid by the starting date or within 2 weeks after your registration has been confirmed (whatever happens earlier), the place will become available to children from other families.
