English Daycare and Preschool in Espoo

Albatross Daycare was established in 1998. It is a private, Finnish owned daycare, in which the working language is English. We offer daycare places for 100 children between 1 – 6 years old. Albatross attracts both Finnish and international families who would like their child to be part of an active environment. Albatross Daycare and Preschool are located in the Leppävaara area, which offers easy access to local amenities such as public transportation.

The daycare founder and owner, Eija Rolamo, received the “Entrepreneur of the year”, in 2006, for recognition of the daycare’s accomplishments.

This week, in preschool our International Week theme came to an end. We had the teachers presenting their countries to the children. Parents also had the opportunity to visit our little exhibition and get to know the different countries that are part of preschool this year.
We also continued with Letterland. This time we got to know Sammy Snake. Then we practiced some numbers and we played with the concept of classification using the toys from the classroom.
Overall, it was a wonderful week! 😊

It has been a busy week for the Hawks, with lots of dances from different places! We had a parent who came and talked about Nigeria 🇳🇬, their food and taught us how to dance; another parent came and shared some yummy snacks, and also taught us a traditional dance and a game from India 🇮🇳. We also learnt about Hungary from one of our teachers 🇭🇺 and celebrated St. Patrick's by listening to a Leprechaun story and learning an Irish dance 🇮🇪
In our flowers of the world project, we made lilies of the valley 🇫🇮 and yellow trumpets 🇳🇬

We also cooked, baked and tasted food from Finland, Canary Islands, Philippines and Ireland.

Lastly, since Easter is approaching fast, we planted the Easter grass.

Parrots have had another exciting week full of adventures! First up was a trip to the library. 📖 They listened to a story read by Iain the librarian and then got to choose some books for the daycare. 📚

Outdoors they had some snow pile fun ❄️ Climbing and sliding on the ice as well as driving an ‘ice bus’. 🚌

On their round the world tour they visited Cape Verde 🇨🇻 . They saw some beautiful scenery, danced to Cape Verdean music 🎵 and ate delicious Pastels. After, was a trip to the US 🇺🇸 for some games and fluffy pancakes. 🥞 We also visited Greece and India where we practiced dancing and got to taste some treats ☺️
Where will they go to next?
