HOME

We are a private English-speaking kindergarten located in Pasila, Helsinki. We are open from 7.30 to 17.00 every week day and we are happy to welcome children from 1 to 7 years old. When children are 6 years old they can continue their pre-primary education (pre-school) in our daycare.

The premises of our kindergarten are spacious and big enough to enable children to move around the building easily. The estimated capacity of the building is 45 children. This lessens any stress level and allows even the most timid child to acclimatize to the kindergarten environment easily and become an active part of it.

We operate from August until June and take vacations during “Christmas time” and in July.

OUR VALUES

Well-being and safety

Well-being is an essential component of our kindergarten. We aim to help develop well-rounded, empathetic and emotionally intelligent individuals with a sense of dentity. Besides, we are members of “Discrimination Free Zone”. For us, emotional safety is an essential component of well-being and learning. In Tiny Hands English Kindergarten, every child is accepted and embraced without discrimination.

Independence and active participation

Our approach is child-led, which means that children will be able to actively participate in the day-to-day decisions with the assistance of our teachers, as a result children will be able to identify their strengths and interests as well as work towards self-reliance and independence.

Free exploration

Children are curious learners by nature, we offer a safe space where they can play, explore their environment and unleash their creative selves!

Sustainability

Sustainability is an important component of our kindergarten. We strive to be more sustainable in every choice, and this is also reflected in our teaching values and activities.

Life-long learning

We aim to bring joy in children’s learning experience and inspire lifelong learners.
