Welcome to Pilke Playschool Haukilahti in the heart of Espoo!
I am Maria and I have a master’s degree in educational leadership, a master’s degree in early childhood education, a diploma in social services and certificates in Reggio Emilia and Montessori methodologies and I am thrilled to extend this warm and personal greeting to you on behalf of our dedicated team.
I have been working in early childhood education all my life, as a bilingual kindergarten teacher, and playschool manager. I have lived and worked in many fantastic places like USA, Canada, UK and now Finland! I am the manager of this wonderful daycare, and I consider it both, a privilege, and a joy to be a part of this vibrant, caring, and multicultural community. Our daycare is not just a place where children come to learn; it's a second home, a place of growth, exploration, and smiles.
We are an English Language playschool, and our work community is a close-knit family, bound by a shared passion for early childhood education. We feel a sense of togetherness and purpose every day as we guide, nurture, and support our little ones on their unique learning journeys.
A good day in our kindergarten is one filled with curiosity and laughter, where every child feels seen, heard, and valued. We cherish the individuality of each child and tailor our approach to meet their specific needs and interests.
What sets our daycare apart is the spirit of inclusivity, cooperation, and a commitment to the principles of the Espoo ECEC curriculum. These values are not just words on paper; they are woven into the fabric of our daily lives.
One of the things we love to do with our children is to embark on exciting journeys of discovery. We encourage exploration and creativity through hands-on activities, outdoor adventures, and collaborative projects. Our aim is to nurture their natural curiosity and foster a love for learning.
Families who choose our daycare appreciate the strong sense of community and the supportive environment we provide. They have peace of mind, knowing that their children are in capable and caring hands.
But there's something more that's truly special about our daycare. It's the little moments - a child's first step, a shared story, the sparkle in their eyes when they grasp a new concept - that make our hearts swell with pride and joy. It's the sense of wonder that fills the air, reminding us of the magic of childhood.
So, if you're looking for a daycare centre that values your child's individuality, where they can explore, learn, and grow in a warm and inclusive environment, you've found it. We're not just educators; we're partners on this incredible journey of early childhood education.
I invite you to explore our daycare and discover why it's more than a place of learning - it's a place of love and belonging. We can't wait to welcome your family into our community.
