Science-oriented daycare centre Pilke Tähtisumu opened in Leinelä, Vantaa, in August 2019

Pilke’s science-oriented daycare centre Tähtisumu provides high-quality child-centred early childhood education and care at a warm-spirited daycare centre.

At the science-oriented daycare centre, we focus on exploring and wondering natural phenomena that arouse the children’s interest. Depending on the children’s ages, the activities may involve studying space or the states of water, admiring rainbows or building three-dimensional objects. The exploration of phenomena and pausing in the moment are educational forms of play that provide children with experiences of success. The daycare centre’s various play facilities have been designed in a way that motivates and encourages exploration and experimentation. Tähtisumu’s equipment and facilities support the young professors’ exploration by providing them with fascinating instruments, such as pipettes, loupes, test tubes and magnifying glasses.

At the science-oriented daycare centre, we find it important that the children learn to discover and explore and are provided with experiences of success – without forgetting the significance of play. The activities are planned taking account of the children’s ages, interests and safe courses of action. We emphasise wondering and exploring phenomena together with the children. Our educators support and help the children to develop their curiosity and thinking through diverse projects that interconnect various learning areas. Our operation naturally involves plenty of other versatile activities, such as singing, drama, handicraft and painting, not to forget sufficient daily rest.
