Kristiina Lehto Daycare Manager

Touhula Väinölä is a daycare centre located in Väinölä, Pori.

Touhula Väinölä 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.

The TouGo application is the primary tool for contacting the daycare center about everyday issues concerning a child.

Partnership in our daycare centre

Touhula’s partnerships are based on the following core values: the joy of learning, the desire to do good and making everyday life easier for families. Touhula daycare centres collaborate with several partners.

  • ReimaGO

    The ReimaGO activity tracker has been specially developed for children. A child only needs to take along the sensor during physical activity and play, since the accumulated data is synchronised, using a mobile device, after physical activity. The tracker activates when the child begins to move and only records the intensity and duration of physical activity.

    The ReimaGO application displays the accumulated energy registered by the tracker due to physical activity. Using this energy, the child can progress through the application’s game worlds and snap up prizes.

    The ReimaGO activity tracker adds digitalisation and games to children’s physical activity, while helping parents to monitor the fulfilment of the Touhula ECEC centres’ physical activity promise.

  • Activities in accordance with Kide Science

    Kide Science activities are science education for young children. Kide Science guides children through the wonders of everyday life through exploration, experimentation and observation. We emphasize playful learning, stories and drama in action.

    The activities are based on the Vartiainen science education model developed at the University of Helsinki. Science education can be seen in all areas of Early Childhood Education and Care, from basic care routines to guided science lessons. Children learn to observe and study the phenomena of science in their own environment and the use of related concepts in everyday life. Children’s approach to science is playful and exploratory pedagogy.
