We have a small kindergarten where every child’s needs, interests and characteristics are noticed, valued and respected. The low teacher-to-child ratio allows the teachers to fully support the development of each child.
Our kindergarten welcomes children from all over the globe. The language of instruction is English, which is taught through play, everyday activities, singing, sports and planned activities. We guide our children to value diversity and cherish different cultures and backgrounds around us.
Being away from home can be stressful for a child at first. Our aim is to create a homelike environment where children feel comfortable and safe. We have cosy rooms, and warm and kind professional staff. Our kindergarten is small, and this helps children to get used to the new environment and new people.
Many of the activities, like afternoon and outdoor playtime, include all the children in the kindergarten. This type of age-mixed play gives younger children an opportunity to learn from their older playmates, see older children as role models and receive emotional support from them. Older children, on the other hand, get to practise nurturance and leadership. In addition, some activities take place together with the school children who study in the same building. Including everyone in an age-mixed environment gives the children a sense of togetherness and being acquainted with all the teachers and children makes moving to an older group smoother for a child.
