Nature-oriented daycare centre Pilke Kotimetsä opened in Orimattila in autumn 2020

Pilke Kotimetsä provides high-quality child-centred early childhood education and care at a welcoming daycare centre with 76 places for children aged 0–5 years.

Plenty of outdoor activities, come rain or shine

At nature-oriented daycare centre Kotimetsä, children participate in a wide variety of outdoor activities in any weather. We place emphasis on wondering and exploring various natural phenomena and making nature trips. Focusing on play, togetherness and the children’s ideas, our learning activities are based on phenomena experienced every day by the children. Imagination, recycling and the use of nature’s gifts in play and learning are an integral part of the nature-oriented daycare centre’s everyday operation.

Versatile activities in compliance with the National Core Curriculum for Early Childhood Education and Care

Naturally, we reserve time also for other versatile activities, such as singing, drama, handicraft and painting, not to forget sufficient daily rest. Everyday pedagogy is part of every moment at the daycare centre. 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.
