Pilke Science-oriented daycare center Kuukkeli opened in Rovaniemi in August 2020.

Kuukkeli is science-oriented daycare center provides high-quality child-centred early childhood education and care. At the daycare centre, we focus on exploring and wondering natural phenomena that arouse the children’s interest. Depending on the children’s ages, the activities may involve studying space or the states of water, admiring rainbows or building three-dimensional objects. The exploration of phenomena is an educational form of play that provides children with experiences of success.

For example, the daycare centre’s play facilities are designed in a way that encourages exploration and experimentation. The daycare centre is equipped with a scientific play space where the young professors can conduct their studies with pipettes, loupes, test tubes and magnifying glasses among other fascinating instruments.

The early childhood educators are present and close to the child as well as the parents. For us it is important that the child is seen and heard. We emphasise wondering and exploring phenomena together with the children.
