Early childhood education and care in versatile learning environments

The central, yet peaceful location of the English-speaking Pilke Englantilainen Leikkikoulu by Lake Kirkkolampi enables versatile activities. We are only a short way from the city centre’s cultural services, and our child groups are a familiar sight at the library’s story times and Minikino film club, in science centres Arktikum and Pilke as well as Vesihiisi swim school. In addition, we make trips to the playground and sand pitch in Lake Kirkkolampi’s surroundings and in the wintertime, we can go skiing or ice fishing.

Learn a new language

English skills are not required when starting daycare. We always adapt our use of English based on the child’s age and skill level. The earlier the child starts to learn the foreign language, the better they speak it when older. Language exposure leaves a deep trace, and English studies at school are often easier to children who have practised the language already at daycare.
