Pilke Playschool Tapiola is located in Espoo Tapiola, close nature, parks, public library and museum. We are within walking distance of Urheilunpuisto metro station, providing good links to Helsinki and other areas in Espoo. Our Playschool cater to children aged 2 to 6. We also are an Espoo City approved Pre-school that provides holistic pre-primary education in English while also simultaneously supporting Finnish language development through our “Suomi Klubi” which is incorporated in our curriculum once a week.

Our curriculum follows the National Core for Early Childhood Education and Care from Finland and puts a strong emphasis on playful learning. Our days are filled with wonderful discoveries, stories and versatile activities that follow the children’s interest. We encourage them to develop ownership of their learning environment and support them in developing their self-confidence, social and emotional skills. We believe that children should have the opportunity to express their creativity while being active participant in their learning journey with us. We focus on the unique development of each child and the importance of a warm and nurturing learning environment.

Pilke Playschool Tapiola is a multicultural environment and we celebrate various festivals and events throughout the year. We feel that by exposing children to a variety of cultures, we help them develop into eager and curious citizens of the world. We have over 20 years of teaching experience in English, but that is not the only important reason guardians recommend us and continue to send siblings. We care about the personal, social and emotional of each individual child. We want to learn the best way to develop their strengths and help creating confident, relaxed children who have friends and a “I can do it!” attitude.

Let’s use what your child loves as the way to help them to make friends, be confident, explore the world and have fun – and let’s do it in English!
