Science orientation at Pilke
At Pilke’s science daycare centres, children wonder and explore phenomena that interest them in small groups with friends and early childhood educators. The science activities are planned taking note of the children’s ages, interests and safe courses of action.
The focus is on joint exploration of phenomena chosen on the basis of the children’s ideas and interests. Depending on the children’s ages, the activities may involve examining the states of water or the solar system, admiring rainbows or building three-dimensional objects. Children are naturally interested in exploring the phenomena surrounding them. Through exploration, they learn new things and receive experiences of success. The daycare centres’ play facilities are designed in a way that motivates and encourages exploration, learning and experimentation.
Naturally, time is reserved also for other versatile activities, such as singing, drama, handicraft and painting, not to forget sufficient daily rest.
