Our preschool education is based on the Finnish National Core Curriculum. Each child’s physical, psychological and social development, and the development of their knowledge and skills are supported. Moreover, preschool education accommodates children’s play, initiatives and experimentation.
Preschool education is integrative in nature. The children’s own interests and the mutual goals of students and teachers alike, form the point of departure for implementing the learning modules.
