Music-oriented daycare centre Pilke Nuotti opens in Siilinjärvi in August 2020.
Pilke will open a new daycare centre in a log building in Taivallahti at the address Silkkiuikuntie Street 1, 71800 Siilinjärvi. The construction of the new building began in the autumn of 2019. Nuotti provides high-quality child-centred early childhood education and care at a warm-spirited daycare centre with places for 72 children.
The music-oriented daycare centre’s objective is to provide the children with musical experiences, capacities and skills as well as experiences of learning and success. We also encourage the children to start longer-term musical hobbies. The music-oriented education is implemented in the daycare centre’s everyday operation through singing, playing instruments, listening to music, reading rhymes, improvising, exercising and dancing, for example.
In the implementation of early childhood education and care, we emphasise the importance of play, participation and discovery in warm-spirited interaction with our educators. In addition to musical and expressive pedagogy, the days of small children involve versatile activities in the new daycare centre’s indoor and outdoor facilities and on trips in compliance with the early childhood education and care curriculum.
The services are provided in a brand-new log building as a response to the growing need for daycare facilities with clean indoor air. In the ecological log-built daycare centre, children get to enjoy fresh indoor air, good acoustics and the calm, peaceful atmosphere created by solid wood elements. The healthy environment is good for the senses and increases the everyday well-being of both the children and the 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.

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.
