About Us

We are a small private daycare for children age 1 to 6 years old. Ideally located in central Helsinki surrounded by central park (Keskuspuisto) where we can enjoy Finnish nature and forest in all seasons.

Our international environment offers your child a creative and diverse learning settings.
We follow the Finnish Early Childhood Education curriculum which greatly emphasises learning through playing.

Your child has the opportunity to learn both English and Finnish languages. We offer extensive bilingual English -Finnish early childhood education (over 25% in English).

We ensure that each child feels safe in familiar surroundings with staff who genuinely care.

Happy Children Kindergarten has zero tolerance on bullying. We emphasise the importance of friendship and treating each other with respect.

Aims and Approach

Our focus is for your children to grow into happy, physically, mentally, healthy and well balanced individuals enriched with life skills to thrive in everyday environment and surrounding.

We attach great value to social skills, self development, independence and motivation for learning in all areas STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math). Learning skills are enhanced through participation and interaction.

We implement indoor and outdoor creative, interesting, fun filled daily activities for your children to enjoy their time in Kindergarten. We organise regular trip to parks, nature walks and places of interest. Together we look at how we can recycle and help to take care of our own environment. 

Your child is unique and deserves high quality care and education. Our dedicated educators ensure that your child’s individual needs are met and learning goals determined as early as possible with the Early childhood education and care plan (VASU – varhaiskasvatussuunitelma ).

“Happy Children offers the best care and education one can hope for their little ones! Children's needs and interests are taken into consideration in all the activities, education and care. Adults shows individual attention for the kids and our child gets all the support and love she needs during the day. Big hearted staff is really kind, professional and experienced. As a family we feel that the communication with the teachers is easy and atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. The premises are safe, clean and planned for kids with lots of activities and toys for all the children. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to offer good early childhood education and care for their children!.”
“This daycare is amazing place! Very clean with great staff and very welcoming. My son have been going here for 3 months and I couldn’t ask for a better daycare. Please keep on the great job that you do Helen and Cayla.”
Happy Children Kindergarten on pieni sympaattinen päiväkoti erinomaisella ja rauhallisella sijainnilla Ruskeasuolla, keskuspuiston kyljessä. Henkilökunta on ammattitaitoista ja aidosti kiinnostuneita lasten hyvinvoinnista. Ulkoilua (myös muualla kuin päiväkodin omalla leikkikentällä) on paljon, samoin kuin erilaisia retkiä. Päiväkodin tilat ovat siistit ja toimivat ja sopivat myös pienemmälle lapselle. Olemme omalta osaltamme olleet erittäin tyytyväisiä päiväkodin toimintaan. Lämmin iso suositus Happy Children Kindergartenille!
Happy Children Kindergarten is a small sympathetic kindergarten in an excellent location in Ruskeasuo, next to the central park. The staff is professional and genuinely interested in the children's well-being. There is a lot of outdoor activities (also outside the kindergarten's own playground), as well as various excursions. The daycare facilities are clean and functional and are also suitable for a smaller child. A big recommendation for Happy Children Kindergarten!
"Ryhmä on pieni ja vetäjät ovat selvästi kiinnostuneita lasten pärjäämisestä ja hyvinvoinnista. Tämä oli meille tärkeää, sillä lapsemme oli niin pieni aloittaessaan päiväkodin ja julkinen puoli vaihtuvilla opettajillaan oli vähän pelottava käsite. Valinta oli aivan oikea, päiväkodin pitäjät ovat erittäin motivoituneita tekemään paikasta miellyttävän ja turvallisen paikan, että on ilo viedä pikkuinen sinne oppimaan ja nauttimaan päivästä. Suosittelen lämpimästi!
The group size is small and the owners are very interested in making sure that the kids are well looked after and happy. This was important for us as our little one was only one when starting there, and the public nurseries with their ever changing teachers was quite a scary prospect. The choice was definitely a good one as the owners are clearly motivated and want to make the place as safe and fun as possible, making it easy to leave our child there to learn and enjoy the day. We warmly recommend this nursey!"
“My girl is the new kid here, however she intergrated to kids group so quickly, she feels happy everyday. As parent, I like the new indoor and outdoor facilities/toys ,and clean & tidy kis-dinner room/toilet. Personal hygiene is quite important for small children in kindergarten. The teachers there are all friendly and kindly / free talk communications with parents frequently in order to know what my child do there everyday. Good location / quite/ safe place and a brand new individual playground-yard, also near to the city forest.”
