Early childhood education in Swedish
Pilke Daycare Centres has five Swedish-speaking units. Depending on the unit, we offer fully Swedish-speaking or extensive bilingual early childhood education also known as language immersion.
Swedish is the only language at our Swedish-speaking daycare centres, whereas in language immersion, the children may use their native language while being encouraged to gradually start using Swedish.
Daily activities at the daycare centres include exercise, handicraft, music moments, outdoor activities, trips in the close surroundings and, of course, sufficient rest. Each Pilke daycare unit complies with the Finnish Act on Early Childhood Education and Care (540/2018), and their operation is guided by the National Core Curriculum for Early Childhood Education and Care.
