  • Happiness: Every child is unique and deserves high quality care and education. One of our main goals is to ensure that your child is happy and motivated to achieve his/her full potential and to be an active participant in their own learning and development.

  • Learning through play: Play is an integral part of a child's physical, personal and social development. Children learn most effectively when they are playing, having fun and following their interests. Outdoor learning is also highly valued at the kindergarten. Our daily schedule allows plenty of time for outdoor play and physical activities.

  • Warm and appreciative interaction: All children develop at a different pace. We have small groups, and we are able to pay particular attention to each child's needs.  A positive self-image and high self-esteem give children the confidence to communicate effectively with adults and other children, as well as to explore the world around them. We have a close working partnership with parents, families and the community.

  • Safety, security and self: We create an environment where the children can feel safe and secure. They are encouraged, through daily activities, to acquire skills that help them achieve goals and develop independence through learning. This is supported with daily routines and structures and rules for behaviour. We provide the children with experiences and support which enables them to develop a positive sense of self.

  • Social competence: This is one of the most important areas of development for young children. Being part of a group helps children develop their communication skills: learn turn taking, interact with peers, develop relationships (friendships), as well as other social skills.

  • Collaborative learning: In the Finnish Curriculum, it is very important for the children to become active participants in their own learning.  We encourage children to share their ideas and thinking processes. We listen closely to their inputs and interests to find out the best way to teach them.

  • English Language: The goal of early language teaching is awaken awareness in children of foreign language and to raise their interest in exploring and learning it. All of our language learning activities are developmentally appropriate and integrated into meaningful contexts that are part of the everyday life of children. Play is a natural medium of learning for children. They learn with all of their senses, through seeing, hearing and movement. Games, songs and playful situations are good and fun ways to teach the language.
