Touhula Hervannan Kampus opened its doors in the campus of Tampere University of Technology in January 2018. We have five groups of children divided on the basis of age. The daycare centre is science-themed and supports the children to experiment and explore the surrounding world. At Touhula Hervannan Kampus every day is an adventure!
In Touhula Science daycare centre, we create space and time for curiosity and creativity. Children expand their skills to observe, analyze and understand their environment. We support children to try, explore and practise through different phases and to be creative in problem-solving.
Children find joy of doing, experiment and discovering by themselves in creative ways. We also learn with children to find information on the phenomena they are interested in. Children will develop their skills to question, find answers together and draw conclusions.
At Touhula Hervannan Kampus the children get to learn communication also in English via Moomin Language School. An atmosphere rich with different cultures and languages inspires kids to explore and understand new perspectives and world views!

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.
Learning is more fun on the children’s terms
Learning a foreign language as a child has positive effects that will last a lifetime. Children learn new languages the best before they go to school, as new information is acquired quickly and they have a natural interest in languages.
Moomin Language School helps kids learn a new language through joy and play.
We invest in a positive and supportive atmosphere that aims to encourage and inspire children to learn a foreign language. By encouraging the child to try and use the foreign language we also strengthen their linguistic identity.
Learning languages early on lays a solid foundation for all learning
Learning languages at an early age improves concentration, prevents learning disability, and accelerates learning new things. The use of a foreign language is integrated in all areas of learning. The positive effects are also evident in reading, speaking, and writing one’s mother tongue, as well as in social capabilities.
Five minutes a day is enough
The Moomin Language School learning application is part of the daycare centre’s everyday operation. In addition to language skills, these exercises develop children’s creativity, memory, mathematical thinking, and social skills. The digital technology motivates the child, makes it easier to use the language verbally, and speeds up learning. The learning only takes 5–15 minutes daily, depending on the child’s capabilities and age. Learning can be tracked in real time for each child.
