Greetings from the Pilke Pohjantähti manager



Hi, I am Ringa Sunn, Pilke Pohjantähti/Polaris kindergarten manager.





I have a wide qualified educational experience in early years, music and arts, also in international environments. I have been working in several Finnish and English speaking kindergartens and schools for well over ten years, first as a kindergarten and music teacher, later as a manager in English speaking multicultural kindergarten settings for the last eight years.





I am a warm hearted, creative person and love to have a close relationship with the staff, kids and families. We are going to have a lot of fun working together!





Outside Pilke opening times you can find me composing; playing and singing folk/ethno music in different music projects/bands, knitting, crafts and spending a lot of time with my family.





I am delighted, excited and happy to introduce myself and Pilke Pohjantähti to you.





Our teaching methods in Pohjantähti encourage the children to laugh a lot, and use both English and Finnish in a natural way through activities and everyday situations. We follow the Finnish national core curriculum for early years in both Finnish but mostly English language. Our staff working language is English, and the whole staff is international: we embrace this every single day. Diversity is a huge strenght here as we see it  <3 .





We beliveve here in Pohjantähti, that children learn everything, language included, quickly through play, arts and problem solving with the guidance of our magnificent teachers. Our main goal is to get them motivated, interested and excited for new things and experiences and enjoy all of it before entering school. The more curious they get, the more interesting their whole life gets in future. This opens doors and makes everything possible!Our kindergarten has a capability to have children of all ages from babies through preschool. They all have their own specific learning areas designed to suit every age group to learn and show their best potential.We have also monthly visiting activities for you to join in to experience how we learn through play with our children. You are always welcome for a visit!  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, I am here to help you out :)
