Available spots in LTI-Tapaninvainio from 9 months upto 5 years old.
LTI is an international daycare more than an English-speaking daycare. Our focus is more on the diversity and internationality of our little tots as well as our staff.
Birth of an idea
While on maternity leave, the owner & primary childcare provider had a vision of opening a daycare where she could care for her own child while helping other parents as well.
On August 18, 2016, Little Tots International officially opened its doors as a family daycare in Pukinmäki.
On May 08, 2017, Little Tots International expanded its Pukinmäki branch into a group family daycare.
On January 08, 2018, Little Tots International expanded its Pukinmäki branch into a daycare.
On January 07, 2019‚ Little Tots International opened its second branch of daycare in Tapaninvainio.
We are an international institution where being diverse is celebrated.
We aim to introduce a new approach to childcare, where the child is viewed as a self-learner, initiator and a capable human being.
* See more about this approach here.
We provide a safe and accepting environment for your child.
We focus not only on the English language, but also on the diversity and internationality of each of our little tots as well as our staff.
We believe that early exposure to different cultures will encourage your child to accept their uniqueness.
We celebrate special days of the different home countries of our little tots and staff and talk about their culture and traditions openly in the daycare. We are hopeful that through this early exposure, we help our little tots be more loving of themselves and accepting of others.
Little Tots International's childcare approach is inspired by Magda Gerber's Educaring® Approach, which is based on respect for and trust in the baby to be an initiator, an explorer, and a self learner. This encourages both the child and the parent / guardian to trust each other, learn to problem solve, and embrace their ability for self-discovery.
More information about the approach may be found here.
We follow the national Finnish curriculum.
We are the second home of our children, which is why it is important for us to make the daycare as home-y as possible for the children.
We will be a place where the children and their parents, together with the childcare providers, feel safe and at ease.
Work Hand-In-Hand With The Family
We work together with the parents in rearing good children. Parents are always welcome in the daycare, so they can observe how we are working with their children.
We welcome parents as active participants in their child’s growth development in the daycare. We value their opinions and suggestions regarding childcare and development.
Child - Carer Relationship
We, the childcare providers, serve as the primary guardians of the children in the daycare. We become their friend who they can trust at all times.
The main language of communication in the daycare is English. The childcare providers speak English fluently and confidently. Children will learn English through play and active communication among other children and the childcare providers.
Our staff is international who speak English as their second (2nd) or third (3rd) language, just like our little tots. Because of this, our little tots are exposed to the beautiful accents of English and different ways of speaking it.
