Touhula Mertala is a daycare centre located in Mertala, Savonlinna.
Touhula Mertala 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.

Savonlinnan Mertalan ja Nätkin Touhuloiden kummina toimii Savonlinnan urheiluopisto Tanhuvaara.
Tanhuvaarassa koulutetaan liikunnanohjaajia ja onkin sovittu, että syksyisin, kun vasta aloittaneet opiskelijat ovat työssäoppimisjaksolla, voisi yhtenä harjoittelupaikkana olla Savonlinnan Touhulat. Syksyllä opiskelijat järjestivät Touhulan lapsille liikunnallisia tempauksia Touhulan tiloissa. Tulevalle keväälle 2017 on suunniteltu Tanhuvaaraan Mertalan ja Nätkin yhteinen liikunnallinen perheilta, jonka opiskelijat järjestävät Touhulan henkilökunnan avustaessa järjestelyissä ja toteutuksessa.
