Touhula Varissuo is a move-themed daycare centre located in eastern Turku. Our daycare is located in a peaceful area, close to a forest and fitness trail, inviting for outdoor adventures.
In addition to emphasizing physical activity, our operation places a strong focus on cultural diversity. At our daycare centre, we speak nearly twenty different languages. Both children and educators are accustomed to hearing and learning various languages as part of daily life. Simultaneously, we emphasize learning the Finnish language in all aspects of daycare activities while considering each child’s individual language skills.
In our operation, we consider the diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds of our client families. This means the ability to adapt Finnish early childhood education practices to meet the needs of children and families, as well as recognizing diversity as a strength and richness.
Respectful encounters also include greeting each child and providing an unhurried welcome when they arrive at the daycare centre in the morning, as well as sharing daily updates with parents when they pick up their child in the afternoon. Effective communication between educators and parents is ensured by using clear Finnish language and visuals in all communication.
Each of our daycare groups goes on weekly field trips, either individually or together with another group. Our daycare facilities and the diverse learning environments are available to every group and child. Both indoor and outdoor spaces encourage children to be active and play, while also providing opportunities for quite down when needed.
One of the advantages of our smaller daycare center is that all the children and adults in the house quickly become familiar with each other, and a sense of community is one of the absolute strengths of our daycare.
