Sports-oriented daycare centre Pilke Huiske provides children with goal-oriented instructed exercise on a regular basis

Pilke’s sports-oriented daycare centre Huiske started its operation in the Halkivaha residential area of Tuusula in August 2014. Our operation is based on the children’s desire to exercise, explore, play and learn. Our objective is to create a warm, safe and unhurried atmosphere where the children can grow and develop as individuals and members of a social group in accordance with their skills and capacities.

Huiske provides children with goal-oriented instructed exercise on a regular basis. We support the children’s daily independent exercise by building a learning environment that encourages and inspires them to do sports. Our sports activities are full of action, positive experiences, successes, adventure, sweat and hearty laughter. Huiske also provides pre-primary education.

Childhood is a unique phase of life, the experiences of which we learn to cherish as adults. The child-centredness of our operation involves genuine interest and sensitivity to analyse each child’s individual needs. We strive to create an unhurried atmosphere where the children have plenty of time to learn, play, exercise and explore. The daycare centre’s operation is based on small group activities and learning basic everyday skills with our early childhood educators.

Frequently asked questions

According to the children under our care:

It is when you get hugs and play with your friends.

It is when you're on a trip or doing something exciting.

It is when you get to sleep a good nap.

It is when you can be yourself.

It is when someone comforts you when you feel bad.

It's when you learn some new play that you can play at home with your family.

The most important goal of Pilke playschools is: to provide the child with a good day to learn - every day.

The playschool is opened as usual in June and in August. July is the holiday season, but care is provided when necessary. Ask the manager of the playschool for details on July opening hours.

Sleeping is not obligatory, but we encourage everybody to rest after lunch and listen to the stories or peaceful music.

Before the start of early childhood education, a common meeting will be arranged to discuss the service contract and the start of early childhood education. Everydayfeedback when dropping off and picking up the child are an important part of catching up and discuss the child’s progress and any concern the guardians may have. Other forms of contact are phones, text messages and emails. All playschools also have notice boards which are worth checking. The playschools also arrange regular parents' evenings and other events, not to forget the annual early childhood education conferences (known as “vasu”).

In Pilke playschools, the breakfast and snack menu has been designed by a nutritionist, which meets the new 2018 early childhood education recommendation. The list includes a versatile selection of Finnish berries, root vegetables and vegetables and whole grain products. We make a conscious effort to cut off sugar-impregnated yoghurts, quarks and sausages. The amount of additives has also been reduced. A warm lunch is provided by our external partner. We also consider special diets. Ask more details from our early childhood educators. For children under 12 months of age, we provide infant formula if needed.
