Kide Science

Science is child’s play

Kide Science emphasizes learning through imagination and storytelling. The miraculous phenomena of everyday life are explored, solved, experimented and observed through problem-solving situations.

Everyday activities at Touhula include the scientific education of small children based on the playful science education model developed by Vartiainen at the University of Helsinki. Science education features as part of all areas of early education, from basic daycare to science teaching sessions. The children learn to observe and explore scientific phenomena in their own environment, and the application of the related concepts in everyday lives. Science is approached in a playful, child-centred manner and through exploration.

Some Touhulas also host Kide science clubs in the evenings, based on the same science education model.
