Susanna Hulkkonen Daycare Manager

Touhula VekaraLahti is a daycare centre located in Saunalahti, Espoo.

Touhula VekaraLahti daycare centre’s pedagogical theme is Arts. In Early Childhood Education and Care of Touhula Arts daycare centres, different forms of art and expression are part of the child’s everyday life. Learning and joy of success are experienced through music, visual, verbal and bodily expression. The creative atmosphere in Touhula motivates children to explore and interpret the surrounding world in new ways: by practising new ways of expressions children are able to develop their thinking and learning skills. Artistic experiences and expression improve prerequisites for learning, learning and social skills, positive self-image and readiness to understand and build sense of the surrounding world.
