HEI Ruoholahti, Helsinki

Elisa Rauas Daycare Manager

HEI Ruoholahti is an international, bilingual (FIN-ENG) daycare centre offering high-quality early education, carefully designed learning environment and focus to creativity and social-emotional skills.

The daycare centre is conveniently located next to Ruoholahti metro station. The facilities are completely renovated according to the HEI Schools concept: loads of natural light and space to arouse creativity and support learning.

At HEI Ruoholahti we go on field trips every week: our favourite targets are the surrounding parks, beaches and culture destinations. We have teachers specialized in both physical education and arts.

We communicate with other HEI Schools daycare centres monthly via HEI Community. Children get to broaden their understanding of different cultures while learning to operate in English.

HEI Schools is an international daycare concept based on the excellence of the Finnish Early Childhood Education and Care. The research-based concept is created in cooperation with the University of Helsinki. All HEI Schools kindergartens are connected to each other, forming a close community, an international “HEI Family”.

Customer feedback

“The diversity of activities is one of things I appreciate most. Week is carefully divided into set of activities all intended for children to learn different skills.”

“They are very prompt and very accomodative of all our requests. The school to parent communication is excellent. As a parent, I know that my child is in safe hands.”
