The customer fee of the daycare is affected by the allowance for private care granted by the Social Insurance Institution Kela. After the private daycare allowance, our customer fee is a maximum of €340/month. The customer fee is possibly reduced by an income-related care supplement. Check Kela’s new income limits here.

To calculate the final customer fee via the Kela pages, you need the full daycare fee. This fee, as well as additional information, you can ask from the daycare manager.

Our daycare center offers 4 hours of free early childhood education for 5-year-olds, in addition to which the city of Helsinki supports families with 5-year-olds with 160 euros per month. Ask the kindergarten manager for more information.

Pilke Taikapomppu is a sports and music oriented daycare centre in Herttoniemi, Helsinki

Pilke Taikapomppu in the Helsinki district of Herttoniemi is a cosy and welcoming daycare centre that offers versatile, child-centred early childhood education and care for children aged 0–5 years. Taikapomppu is a sports and music oriented daycare centre

The joy of exercise and versatile activities every day

Taikapomppu is a sports-oriented daycare centre, whose objective is to help children find the joy of exercise and adopt a sporty lifestyle. The sports-orientation is implemented in the daycare centre’s everyday operation through trips, daily yard games, weekly musical movement activities and instructed exercise.

Music, songs and rhymes

Our objective is to provide children with musical experiences, capacities and skills as well as experiences of learning and success. We also encourage the children to start longer-term musical hobbies. We express the musical learning orientation through our love for music, and among other activities, we sing, play instruments, dance and improvise in a joyful atmosphere every day.

Versatile activities in accordance with the early childhood education plan

We naturally reserve time for other versatile activities, such as singing, trips, drama, handicraft and painting, not to forget sufficient daily rest. Everyday pedagogy is part of every moment of the daycare centre’s operation. It is present in pausing to wonder things together; counting peas in the salad bowl or experimenting with colours when painting. We value each unhurried moment we get to spend conversating, playing or just being silly while exploring the world together.


“Our daughter started early education at Taikapomppu at the turn of the year. We wanted to find her a daycare centre with a good location close to Herttoniemi’s services, the metro and other public transport connections. In addition, the high-quality pedagogic early childhood education plan and Pilke Daycare Centres’ good reputation were important factors when making the choice. The daycare centre manager’s leadership philosophy and the employees’ positive attitude have made us satisfied with our choice. We are lucky to have found such a functional sports-oriented daycare centre so close to our home.”
