Pilke Tähtimetsä provides language-enriched early childhood education in Hirvensalo, Turku

Pilke Tähtimetsä is located on Tammistontie Street in Haarla, Hirvensalo, close to the Haarla School. The daycare centre has 73 places for children aged 1–6 years, and we also provide pre-primary education. At Tähtimetsä, children experience the joy of play in bright, functional and safe premises – both indoors and outdoors. Tähtimetsä provides language-enriched early education in English, and the children get to practise familiar songs, rhymes and concepts in English through common singing and pondering activities.

The days at Tähtimetsä involve versatile activities such as play, singing, exercise and handicraft. We allow the children to develop self-initiative individually and to be part of the group as active individuals. Each child group has separate group premises, and we have a common gym for all groups. Our premises enable the organisation of important small group activities. At Tähtimetsä, cooperation with the parents plays an important role, and we have an active parents’ committee.
