LTI Daycare 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 of 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.

We provide a safe and accepting environment for your child.
We focus more on the diversity and internationality of each of our little tots as well as our staff and share a common language which is English.
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.
The owner and main childcare provider in LTI is a proud Educarer, becoming the 1st RIE Associate in Finland and Scandinavia. She has attended an intensive Foundations Course in 2019, has finished her Practicum in 2022 and has assisted in teaching Foundations Courses online.

We follow the national Finnish curriculum.
