Laugh&Learn Playschool’s teaching program prepares children socially and academically, as well as supports and encourages the development of independence, responsibility, and confidence, all of which are essential for your child’s ongoing success.

Our teaching program focuses on each child’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development by offering concrete, hands-on activities for the child to explore. We follow the early childhood guidelines set up by Helsinki City and the Finnish government.

The L&L teaching program is designed to actively engage each child in developmentally age-appropriate activities. Our qualified and experienced teachers prepare activities that are exciting and challenging, as well as supportive of each child’s own learning style.

The playschool classroom arrangement creates the optimum learning environment. It allows children easy access to educational toys, materials and books, enabling them to initiate and expand their activities.
