Specialist in early childhood development
We are a small private English kindergarten operating in Helsinki since 2011. We have daycare centers in Kallio (14 children), Etelä-Haaga (24 children) and Länsi-Pasila/Eläintarha (40 children). Our kindergartens provide a safe, caring and fun environment for children to learn and develop.
The small size of our kindergartens permits us to focus on each child’s individual needs and development. Our experienced teachers encourage creativity and learning through fun and play. We also aim to promote an international environment where children learn about other cultures.
We are an active kindergarten that goes on many trips and we walk to different local parks regularly. We believe that active children are happy children!
The Little English Kindergarten aims to create an environment where children can be safe, happy and motivated to learn. The teachers are there to listen and support the children.
The kindergarten also wants to nurture an environment that is open, honest and warm. Children are always welcomed with open arms whenever they want a hug. The children should feel at home and secure while at the day care centre. The kindergarten has three main values. Please read more about them.
VALUES AND OBJECTIVES
We structure our curriculum around learning areas, which we implement in a holistic way throughout our activities in order to support the development of your child. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning children can develop and have fun.
The Haaga, Kallio and Länsi-Pasila branches can accept applications for children aged between 3 and 6 years. The Länsi-Pasila daycare additionally has a group of 2 to 3 year olds.
The language of instruction in the kindergarten is English, although some of our teachers understand Finnish and can communicate in Finnish if necessary.
