Welcome to Happy Toddlers - Espoo
Happy Toddlers is a private English Language Early Childhood Education unit, with 28 positions for children between 3 and 6 years of age. We support children's skills and learning experiences with a holistic approach that follows the National Core Curriculum. Our children learn in a fun and stimulating atmosphere using English. Happy Toddlers was established in 1993 and is situated in Nuottaniemi, Espoo, Finland. It is registered as "Happy Toddlers" - päiväkodin kannatusyhdistys ry., as a non-profit organization and is supported by our parents' association.
The children entering the daycare are not required to have English language skills. Our goal is to prepare them to continue their education either at a Finnish, Bi-lingual or English comprehensive school However, our focus is on English language skills not on teaching Finnish from scratch.
The daycare is open weekdays from 7:45 am to 17:00 pm. We are closed on all national holidays, between Christmas and New Year and during the month of July. Our service provides:
- Small groups that enhance children's sense of safety
- Quality care that supports the children's needs and interests
- A programme that includes a variety of activities: Moovkids gym practice, music, ice-skating, cultural and other sport activities
- An Espoo certified pre-school
FREE PLACES are currently available. Due to a sudden relocation, we have two places that will be allocated first-come-first-served. We have a free place for a child born in 2017 and 2019.
If you are interested, please contact our Director Mrs. Luz Elena Castro-Lähteenmäki for more information and to organize a tour.
