Touhula Lappeenrannan Kampus is a two-group daycare centre located in Skinnarila, Lappeenranta. The daycare centre opened its doors in January, 2019. We provide Early Childhood Education and Care with themes of language and science.
At Touhula Lappeenrannan Kampus we celebrate the diversity in our children and incorporate language development and communication skills in our activities throughout the days. Most of the kids are not native Finnish-speakers and we encourage all children to improve their English skills through fun rhymes, games and songs.
There is a weekly afternoon science-club for the kids at Touhula Lappeenrannan Kampus. The pedagogical methods of Kide Science are based on academic research conducted at the University of Helsinki. Kide Science helps kids get excited about the natural sciences through play-based learning.
Our daycare centre operates in building 4 (P4) at LUT University of Technology. You can find our main entrance by following the Touhula signs that guide the way through our yard.
Our facilities are in two floors and are convertable into workplaces for smaller groups or workshops. Nature is right around the corner: from our sheltered yard you can find forest that summons kids to adventure and play creatively!

Playful science for children
Touhula has incorporated Kide Science’s proven pedagogical methods in its daily curriculum. Kide Science helps children to get excited about the natural sciences through play-based learning. Children are naturally curious. They get to know the world around them through exploration, trial and questioning. The pedagogical methods support children in their natural ability to wonder and question.
The method uses stories and drama to draw out kids’ curiosity towards natural phenomena. Every child will get to experience what it feels like to successfully experiment as they solve scientific puzzles and find answers to their own questions. Positive childhood experiences of exploration and independent learning have effects far into adulthood.
Kide’s proven pedagogical methods are based on rigorous academic research conducted at the University of Helsinki, Finland. The pedagogical approach is supervised by Jenni Vartiainen, who is a leading researcher in the field of play-based science education.
The Kide science clubs are organised in Touhula’s premises even in the evening time.
