The Finnish-American Kindergarten

has been in operation for more than 40 years. Over this time, we’ve grown and we’ve watched families grow with us. Our former pupils are always welcome to visit, and often do so – just popping by the park for a chat or coming back as teenagers completing their work practices. It is important that each child leaves our kindergarten having had a great experience and that they go to school full of confidence and eagerness.

Children as active participants

Just as the children learn from us, we learn from the children. Their ideas, thoughts and interests form the basis of our themes and topics. It’s important that they see themselves reflected and valued in the kindergarten, whether it’s seeing their art work nicely framed and displayed, or being given the chance to show their expertise in different areas. Our children have opportunities daily to speak and be heard, and to influence our practice.

Parents are important to us

You know your child best and we want to hear your opinions. At the kindergarten, we have an open doors policy: you may come to the kindergarten at any time to see how your child is doing, or to talk with the teachers. It is important that parents and teachers trust and respect each other. We work best when we work together for the benefit of your child.

Welcome to Töölö 2’s second annual charity bake sale! ❤️
This year, we’re proud to announce that we gathered 180€! 😄

After a long discussion with the children about how and why it’s important for charities to exist, they decided that we will give half the money to Hope - Yhdessä & Yhteisesti ry for the children in need and to Helsingin eläinsuojeluyhdistys HESY ry for the injured animals in Helsinki!
