The Tiny Hands English Kindergarten has started its operation in 2016. As foreign entrepreneurs we were striving to create a welcoming environment both for locals and families who have come to Finland. We strongly believe that communication and feedback is the key for effective relationships, so we try to focus more on the families and improve together with them. Our main teaching philosophy is to build on diversity and multiculturalism. Children attending our daycare are becoming family members and community builders, as do their families.

Children learn from us and we learn from children too!

We have achieved our goal to create a warm and friendly environment, so we invite you also to join us and become a member of the Tiny Hands Family.

What Parents Say

Cosy environment, kind and enthusiastic staff. Finnish speaking teacher at the small children’s group Bunnies is a big bonus! I also value the flexibility and discussion as almost anything can be negotiated. The Tiny Hands staff have also succeeded very well in taking care of our food allergic toddler.

I love the welcoming feeling each morning when I bring my kids there. They are always happy to go to Kindie, that I think is the best feedback! Also the use of the App is really nice, love getting pictures of what the kids have been doing. And of course the fact that I can see how they slept and ate is great!


As a parent of a toddler, I like it that the groups are not huge. In a smaller daycare centre children learn to know all their peers as well as all of the staff. The smaller children also learn from watching the older ones.
