We will open a nature daycare centre in Lystimäki, Espoo in August 2023

Nature daycare centre Unikko will open in Lystimäki, Espoo, in August 2023. Unikko offers versatile early childhood education and care in a functional daycare centre with 44 beds.

Outdoor activities in any weather

Unikko is a natureoriented daycare centre where children learn a positive attitude towards nature and a sustainable lifestyle. The daycare centre enjoys a lot of outdoor activities regardless of the weather. The activities emphasise exploring and wondering about various natural phenomena, regular hiking and walking in nature. Ingenuity, recycling and utilising natures own gifts in learning and as play equipment are an important part of the daycare centres everyday life.

Diverse activities in accordance with the early childhood education plan

Naturally, our activities also include other versatile activities, such as singing, theatre performances, handicraft and painting sessions, not forgetting moments of rest. Everyday pedagogy is present in every moment of the daycare centre. It is stopping together and wondering about things; counting peas from the salad and playing with colors while painting. We appreciate every unhurried moment we get to spend talking, playing and chatting; exploring the world together.
