Music-oriented daycare centre Pilke Tuulikello is located by excellent transport connections in Perkkaa, Espoo

Tuulikello is a pleasant, music-oriented private daycare centre in the Espoo district of Perkkaa, close to shopping centre Sello. The daycare centre is easily accessible by bus, train or car. Tuulikello provides children with versatile early childhood education and care at an active daycare centre with 28 places for children between the ages of 10 months and 5 years.

We allow every child to be an individual who grows and develops at their own pace while the educators listen to them, give them time and provide them with opportunities to engage in versatile activities. For us, it is important to encounter the children genuinely, taking account of their experiences, and we value intimacy, good humour and happiness for both children and adults. We place emphasis on doing things together and paying attention to others.

Our operation is based on small groups which are formed in various ways on the basis of age, games and instructed activities. We consider it essential to let children of different ages to play together to provide them with opportunities to learn from each other. The children and their parents participate in planning our operation jointly with the educators.

At Tuulikello, musical activities comprise playing instruments, singing, dancing, celebration, rhymes, musical movement and music clubs, among many others. Music is present in everyday life at the daycare centre in various ways, and our objective is to foster the children’s interest in music comprehensively and to convey the joy of music to everyone. Everyone is allowed to express their musical self in their own unique manner.

You’re welcome to visit us!

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.
