6 to 7
This is our pre-school group. In the Wise Owls class children have lots of opportunities to explore, imagine, create and learn through play as well as have time with the teacher to learn new skills and knowledge.
Children are encouraged to have a go at new challenges and learn from each other.
A positive learning environment helps children to develop social and emotional well-being and provides them with skills , intelligence and attitudes to succeed at school and throughout their lives. We listen closely to children's ideas and use them to plan new topics and activities in class.
Language learning is further supported in this class by morning circle, action poems, daily storytime in English and lots of singing. In this class we also have Finnish lessons because we follow the Finnish curriculum.
JANIRE GARCÍA CANCILLO
My name is Janire, and I’m the preschool teacher. I have come all the way from a little coastal village in the north of Spain, and I’m very excited to be your kid’s preschool teacher. The classroom is a comfy and safe place where they can express themselves, explore what is around us, and experiment with new things. My main goal is that they learn the language and enjoy the process through games and fun activities.
Hi! I'm Roosa. I teach the Finnish preschool for the Owls. I'm also the teacher for the Foxes. I get my motivation from teaching. My favourite activities are artistic and practical subjects: music, crafts, storytelling and activities that develop our emotional intelligence.
Hi! My name is Carita. My goal is to provide love, tenderness and care to every individual in the group. All of the children should feel safe and equal. I enjoy seeing them learn new things. I also love to introduce different kinds of sport activities during the week. These things are close to my heart!
