Touhula Seaside International, Espoo

Sirpa Lassila Daycare Manager

Touhula Seaside International is an English-speaking daycare centre located in Keilaniemi, Espoo. Our daycare provides a relaxed and peaceful environment where fun, play and learning go hand in hand.

Daycare centre became part of Touhula in January 2019 and was formerly called Small Folks Keilaranta.

Located steps from the Keilaranta Metro Station, Seaside International has great access from the capital region and our playground overlooks the beautiful seascape of Keilalahti. Our educational philosophy is centered around children 0-6, as their happiness and healthy development is our ultimate purpose. We emphasize the child’s individuality, and the significance of active learning in a multicultural environment.

As English is the main language of our Early Childhood Education and Care, we aim at reaching high standards of English for both native speakers as well as children who have English as a second language. We incorporate language development in our daily activities and otherwise encourage English communication throughout the day.

We strive to be a happy, multicultural community and prepare children for being citizens of the globalized world. We respect each and every individual and take into account diverse requests in a way that fits to Seaside International values as well.
