Pilke Helmitarha is a homelike, music-oriented daycare centre in central Nurmijärvi. Helmitarha provides versatile, child-centred early childhood education and care in a warm-spirited daycare centre where the children experience the joy of life and feel loved in a safe environment. The daycare centre also offers language-enriched early education in Spanish, and the children get to practise everyday concepts in Spanish through songs and play.
The music-oriented daycare centre’s objective is to provide the children with musical experiences, capacities and skills as well as experiences of learning and success. The essential building blocks of our music-oriented education include songs, singing games, rhymes, musical instruments, exercise and music listening activities. We also encourage the children to start longer-term musical hobbies.
At Helmitarha, we understand the significance of play in children’s development and learning in line with the National Core Curriculum for Early Childhood Education and Care. When planning the daycare centre’s operation, we take the children’s perspective into account by listening to their ideas and allowing them to participate. We respect good manners and regard each child as a unique individual.
The daycare centre’s close surroundings provide an ideal environment for exploring nature, making trips and engaging in versatile exercise during each season. The nearby facilities include, for example, the Lukkari School’s sports field, a sports park, a library, a playground and the Ahjola venue whose hall we can use for indoor sports activities. Helmitarha is staffed by well-educated personnel who are passionate about providing high-quality care and education for young children. We cooperate with families for the children’s benefit and respect the families’ values.
