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 €360/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 Taikamaa provides high-quality early childhood education and care in Ruskeasuo, Helsinki

Pilke Taikamaa is located by excellent transport connections on Mannerheimintie Street in the Helsinki district of Ruskeasuo. We make weekly trips to our close surroundings that include a forest and playgrounds, for example. At Taikamaa, children learn through play, exploration, hands-on activities, exercise and contemplation – together with others.

Our objective is to implement high-quality early childhood education and care which involves education partnership with parents, small group activities, self-expression as well as enthusiastic and insightful exploration. Our operating principles are based on creative activities, small group and project work as well as documentation.

A science club is organised for children aged over three years at the daycare centre once a week. At the science club, children explore natural sciences and technology through fun and concrete activities such as building Lego robots and observing the weather. The science club is organised by Finnish Science School.
