THE ENGLISH KINDERGARTEN OF KUOPIO

Kindergarten

There are four groups on two sites ranging from nursery groups to pre-school groups. The kindergarten is open from 07:00 – 17:00.

There is usually one teacher and two nurses in each group. We have both native English and Finnish speaking teachers and nurses. Children and parents do not need to speak English when starting at the kindergarten.

A child can start at the kindergarten in August of the year when she or he is or turns 4 years old.
A child cannot come directly to our pre-school (starting in August during the year in which they turn six) without any English skills (e.g. time spent in an English speaking country). We require that a child is at least one year in the playschool before going to our pre-school unless she or he is a native English speaker. Usually children spend two years in the kindergarten and then continue at our pre-school.
