Because every child is unique also our on-boarding methods vary. Some children adapt to a new kindergarten very fast while others take more time. We discuss the personal plan for your child before he/she starts at the kindergarten. Normally, we start with a first day visit with one of the parents were you can take part in some fun activity, such as the morning circle, together with your child. Next day, if your child is ready, she/he could stay from 30 mins to an hour at the daycare by her/himself. During the first week we gradually prolong the time your child spends alone at the daycare. Often, normal routines can begin during the second week of daycare. 



Our Haaga day care center is located on Kauppalantie 44, a short walk from the Huopalahti train station.
