We offer day care on weekdays from 7.45 in the morning to 5 pm in the afternoon. There are three groups: Morning Montessori and Afternoon Montessori to children from 3 to 5 years, and Preschool for the 6-year-olds. The day of the 3–5-year-old children is divided into Montessori activities (see Encouraging learning) and regular playtime. During the preschool-year children will receive preschool-education including Finnish lessons that are required by Finnish legislation.


The daily routines of all groups include:

  • Healthy breakfast, lunch & snack (special diets are taken into account).
  • Refreshing outing in the Lastenlehto-park nearby.
  • Learning through Montessori classroom activities (see Encouraging learning).
  • Free and safe indoor-playtime.


Additional activities during the year include among others:

  • Regular music groups and gym lessons.
  • Fieldtrips, theatre trips and concerts.
  • The pre-schoolers also visit libraries, go ice-skating and attend swimming school.
