Touhula Otsontähti, Seinäjoki

Paula Murtomäki Daycare Manager

Touhula Otsontähti is a daycare centre located in Karhuvuori, Seinäjoki.

Touhula Otsontähti daycare centre’s pedagogical themes are Arts and Move. In Early Childhood Education and Care of Touhula Arts daycare centres, different forms of art and expression are part of the child’s everyday life. Learning and joy of success are experienced through music, visual, verbal and bodily expression. The creative atmosphere in Touhula motivates children to explore and interpret the surrounding world in new ways: by practising new ways of expressions children are able to develop their thinking and learning skills. Artistic experiences and expression improve prerequisites for learning, learning and social skills, positive self-image and readiness to understand and build sense of the surrounding world.

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.
