Pilke Taikapomppu is a sports-oriented daycare centre in Herttoniemi, Helsinki

Pilke Taikapomppu in the Helsinki district of Herttoniemi is a cosy and welcoming daycare centre that offers versatile, child-centred early childhood education and care for children aged 0–5 years.

Taikapomppu is a sports-oriented daycare centre, whose objective is to help children find the joy of exercise and adopt a sporty lifestyle. The sports-orientation is implemented in the daycare centre’s everyday operation through trips, daily yard games, weekly musical movement activities and instructed exercise.

We naturally reserve time for other versatile activities, such as singing, trips, drama, handicraft and painting, not to forget sufficient daily rest. Everyday pedagogy is part of every moment of the daycare centre’s operation. It is present in pausing to wonder things together; counting peas in the salad bowl or experimenting with colours when painting. We value each unhurried moment we get to spend conversating, playing or just being silly while exploring the world together.

A science club is organised for children aged over three years at the daycare centre once a week. At the science club, children explore natural sciences and technology through fun and concrete activities such as building Lego robots and observing the weather. The science club is organised by Finnish Science School.

“Our daughter started early education at Taikapomppu at the turn of the year. We wanted to find her a daycare centre with a good location close to Herttoniemi’s services, the metro and other public transport connections. In addition, the high-quality pedagogic early childhood education plan and Pilke Daycare Centres’ good reputation were important factors when making the choice. The daycare centre manager’s leadership philosophy and the employees’ positive attitude have made us satisfied with our choice. We are lucky to have found such a functional sports-oriented daycare centre so close to our home.”
