Music-oriented Pilke Taikatuuli is a small daycare centre for 35 children in Ylivieska
Pilke’s music-oriented daycare centre Taikatuuli has 35 daycare places for children aged 1–6 years. At Taikatuuli, the weekly rhythm is characterised by music and singing games. The children also participate in forest trips and walks in the close surroundings. We also sing and play natural instruments during our trips.
Small group activities
The 1–5-year-old children stay downstairs where they participate in small group activities, such as singing, play and practise of manual skills based on their ages. Our musical activities involve the use of both real and bodily instruments that familiarise the children with their bodies and develop their body control. Rhythms and rhymes develop the children’s vocabulary through pleasant and inspiring activities.
The energetic pre-schoolers bustle upstairs where they participate in a wide variety of activities, such as storytelling, making music, handicraft and solving pre-primary education assignments. We provide pre-primary education from Monday to Thursday from 9.00 am to 1.00 pm. On Fridays, pre-primary education ends at 12 o’clock.
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.

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.
