Carousel Olari operates through three different group spaces, located in close proximity. These different groups cater for children aged 1 to 7 years. Our Olari groups are called Owls, Tigers and Spiders. All our environments offer a homely atmosphere for the children as well as varied resources for play and projects. All our Olari groups are located close to parks and woods, providing the children many opportunities to explore and investigate nature.
Sensory play develops children’s creativity, imagination and curiosity and gross motor skills.
Heuristic play promotes curiosity and exploration. As children select, manipulate, explore, compare items they discover what the object can and can’t do.
ICT opportunities allow children to develop their mathematical thinking and practice their technological skills.
Trips are regularly organized so that children can acquaint themselves with their surrounding environment. Trips can also offer unique cultural learning experiences.
Children and educators share their thoughts and experiment with different working approaches. They have the opportunity to experience joy of learning and playing together.
In our gym spaces, hoops, bean bags, soft balls and gym equipment are set out inspiring the children to experience the joy of moving and being physically active in a variety of ways.
Yoga for children is a great approach to develop strength, flexibility and coordination.

” I studied Early Childhood Education and Primary Education in order to have a wide picture of children’s global and learning development. I also completed some courses in alternative pedagogies, and I’ḿ currently taking part of the Masters program of Changing Education at University of Helsinki. I’m passionate to develop myself further to be part of the global effort of helping children to learn and enjoy life along with appreciating others. “
