Pilke Peppi & Bobby is a billingual daycare centre in Nokia

Peppi & Bobby Daycare Centre  became part of Pilke on August 1, 2016. At the same time, the daycare centre moved from Orelinkatu to their brand new building in Vikkulankatu. The new premises have 120 daycare places for children aged 10 months—6 years. Peppi & Bobby is a bilingual daycare centre with both Finnish and English groups. For children over 3 years old there are three English groups and one Finnish group; both groups for the under 3 years olds are Finnish.

In Peppi & Bobby the educators use a lot of fairy tales and storycrafting which serve to listening to the children and making them participate. Experimenting and doing together create shared positive experiences. Children take an active part in planning the operation and carrying it out. The days in daycare consist of safe routines and repetitive timetable with focus on the child.

Daycare in English

There are three English groups, two for children aged 3—5 years and one for 5—6 year olds with pre-primary education. The everyday routines take place in English, otherwise the things are similar to other daycare centres. Using a foreign language in everyday situations is fun, and small children adopt the second language faster than we can imagine. The children’s own readiness is taken into account and they are always understood.

Peppi & Bobby pre-primary school

In Peppi & Bobby pre-primary school things are learnt through functional methods and projects.

In the English pre-primary school 80 % of the pre-primary teaching takes place in English and 20 % in Finnish. This prepares the child to school in a variety of ways and encourages the use of English even in future.
