ICEC daycare centres follow the Finnish national early childhood education plan in an international environment. The daycare centre’s activities emphasise childrens creativity, play, multiculturalism and participatory learning.

Englishlanguage kindergarten enables language development

The Englishlanguage kindergarten allows children to grow up in a multicultural, international environment, which contributes to activating language development. We want to bring the English language to life by telling, showing and sharing information that is interesting to children. We strengthen and encourage childrens language development through positive practices, such as games and songs. Children also like to share things, so that their own will encourages them to speak a foreign language.

We understand different ethnic backgrounds and take cultural events into account. We celebrate many international holidays such as diwali, Chinese New Year, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Christmas and so on.
