Pilke Välke is a science-oriented daycare centre in the Pori Housing Fair area

In August 2018, Pilke opened daycare centre Välke on Koekatu Street in the Pori Housing Fair area. The science-oriented Pilke unit provides high-quality child-centred early childhood education and care for children aged 0–6 years at a warm-spirited daycare centre with 96 daycare places, and our services also include pre-primary education.

The science-orientation is implemented in various ways in our everyday operation. The daycare centre’s play environments have been built in a way that motivates and encourages exploration and experimentation. Children’s play, creativity and the use of the senses are great platforms for practising scientific thinking that develops children’s memory and learning skills.

At the science-oriented daycare centre, we find it important that the children learn to discover and explore and are provided with experiences of success – without forgetting the significance of play. The activities are planned taking account of the children’s ages, interests and safe courses of action. We emphasise wondering and exploring phenomena together with the children. We naturally reserve time for other versatile activities, such as singing, trips, drama, handicraft and painting, not to forget sufficient daily rest. Everyday pedagogy is part of every moment of our operation. 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.
