The school operates over two terms, Spring (Jan-May) & Autumn (Aug-Dec), meeting roughly every two weeks.

The childrens' tuition is subsidised by an annual grant from The Finnish Ministry of Education through Suomi-Seura. We then cover any remaining costs by operating a cafe & shop during school hours and by collecting term fees. The grant does not cover the adult learners or music sessions.
