Pilke opened a new English-speaking daycare centre on Lippulaiva, Espoonlahti in August 2022.

Pilke Playschool Espoonlahti is a welcoming daycare centre where children can both practice and maintain their English skills. Our English-speaking pedagogical activities adhere to the Finnish National Core Curriculum for Early Childhood Education and Care.

Centrally located

The daycare centre’s central location provides various opportunities for exploring the close surroundings. Our activities include frequent trips to, for example, parks, libraries, museums and other cultural sites. There is a large outdoor courtyard in front of the kindergarten entrance.


There are also Finnish-language groups in the kindergarten, where English is gradually introduced. In language-rich early childhood education, children get to practice familiar songs, rhymes and concepts by singing and meditating together in English, but Finnish is also used in everyday life.

The Swedish-speaking group Kissankulma offers Swedish language-enriched early childhood education.

For children aged less than 3 years, we provide language-enriched early childhood education. At Kissankulma, the children learn language through singing, play, rhymes and stories as well as everyday activities.
