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 €325/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.

English language and a happy mind!

Pilke Playshool in Kallahti, Vuosaari, is a small, warm, English-speaking daycare centre with great outdoor spaces near the sea.

At Playschool Vuosaari, your child can both learn and maintain their English language skills. We implement the Finnish early childhood education plan in English. Each group also has the opportunity to participate in Finnish language activities.

At Playschool Vuosaari, children explore, wonder, delight and insight in a linguistically and culturally diverse environment. At the same time, they lay the foundations for lifelong language learning. All children are welcome to learn English with us, and no existing language skills are required of the child or carer.

We help raising curious citizens of the world

Pilke Playschool Vuosaari is a multicultural environment that celebrates a wide range of events throughout the year. We want to introduce children to different cultures and help them develop into curious global citizens. We have over 20 years of experience in English-language early childhood education.

Our central location offers opportunities to explore the local environment and the nursery often takes children on excursions to parks, libraries, museums and other cultural sites.
