Paula Alajarva Daycare Manager

Touhula Satumetsä is a daycare centre located in Laivakangas, Jääli.

Touhula Satumetsä daycare centre’s pedagogical theme is Move. Early Childhood Education and Care of Touhula Move involves a lot of physical movement. We encourage children to move in varied and creative ways during the day. Physical movement is present in all areas of learning, and we discuss with children about the importance of movement, rest and good relationships to wellbeing and health. Children are allowed to express themselves daily, try their own limits and experience feelings of success through physical movement. There is always time and space for natural moving and play outdoors and indoors. We promise to families that children experience the joy of movement daily. In Touhula daycare centres, children develop a healthy relationship to physical movement and self-care. This creates a balanced basis for healthy habits of life.

  • Noora Räisänen

    Touhula Satumetsä, Jäälissä ja hiihtosuunnistaja ja suunnistaja Noora Räisänen Raahesta ovat sopineet urheilijakummiyhteistyöstä.

    Noora edustaa Saloisten Reipasta. Hän on moninkertainen hiihtosuunnistuksen arvokisaedustaja.

    19-vuotiaiden EM-kilpailuissa Noora on saavuttanut neljä kertaa sijoituksen kuuden parhaan joukkoon, parhaimpana näistä sprintin kultamitali vuonna 2013. Noora valittiin Pohjois-Pohjanmaan nuoreksi urheilijaksi vuonna 2013. Hiihtosuunnistuksessa Noora on myös moninkertainen kultamitalisti.

    Suunnistuksessa parhaimpiin saavutuksiin kuuluu sprintistä kaksi 9.sijaa sekä keskimatkan 10.sija SM-kilpailuista. Noora on pienestä asti harrastanut ja kokeillut erilaisia lajeja mm. jalkapalloa, jääkiekkoa sekä ampumahiihtoa. Noora kuuluu hiihtosuunnistuksen nuorten maajoukkueryhmään.

    Noora on jo vieraillut päiväkodilla useana päivänä ja touhunnut, pelannut ja liikkunut lasten kanssa. Noora tutustutti meidät suunnistuksen alkeisiin: tutustuimme karttaan ja karttamerkkeihin päiväkodin pihalla ja toisella kertaa Noora järjesti meille suunnistusradan läheiseen leikkipuiston metsään.
