JOY IN MOTION
We are part of the national physical activity and well-being programme for early childhood education, Joy in Motion (“Ilo Kasvaa Liikkuen” in Finnish). The goal is to encourage children to take part and enjoy physical activity everyday. The Ministry of Education and Culture and the Finnish National Agency for education have the strategic responsibility of Joy in Motion Programme. This national initiave encourages teachers around Finland to share their activity tips and what to do with children to get them moving!
Through international ERASMUS teacher exchange programme you may see a visiting teacher from another European school at our kindergarten! The visits will help children to meet people from different cultures from an early age. For the visiting teachers it gives a wonderful opportunity to learn about finnish education and our way of working in an international kindergarten.
