New Nordic School
By the Sea

Bilingual daycare in Jätkäsaari, Helsinki (opening 01/2021)


Welcome to our bilingual daycare!

Early years education is the beginning, where kids take the first steps in their learning journey. Learning is an adventure, an exploration. We prepare children for a world that requires them to be creative, innovative, adaptable and collaborative problem solvers with excellent communication skills.

Play, creativity, holistic wellbeing, curiosity, multicultural, collaboration, and empowerment - this is what By the Sea is all about!

We create a special community not only for your child but for the whole family to feel a part of. We believe in actively engaging parents with the daycare’s day-to-day activities, so that they can have a more active role in their child’s learning.

By The Sea daycare is ready to sail and full of….

🇬🇧🇫🇮 Bilingual pedagogy
Bilingual pedagogy is a way to help the children get familiar with a new language. The languages we use are approximately 50% Finnish and 50% English. Both languages are used in everyday situations and structured activities.

🌏 Pedagogical best practices
We use Finland’s Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) curriculum blended with Montessori and Reggio Emilia philosophies.

🌟 School culture that empowers
Interest and passion for learning unleashed through a daycare culture where being bold, empowered, innovative, and collaborative are at the core – while having fun! These values strongly influence our approach to teaching and learning.

🧸 Holistic learning environment
A safe, holistic environment empowers children by developing the whole child through fun, hands on, academic, socioemotional, cognitive, adaptive, cultural, and physical activities. It provides freedom and autonomy with guidance from the teachers.

🚀 Developing future skills
Our future-ready early years education develops important future skills of collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication to prepare children for their next stage of education.

🧘🏽‍♀️ Mindfulness activities
Guiding children to be present in the moment. Age-appropriate activities increase focus, reduce stress levels, increase learning potential, and help eliminate bullying.

🚂 Learning through purposeful play
Learning life skills such as exploring, identifying, risk-taking, sharing, turn-taking, negotiating, and leadership while building their friendships through interactions.

👣 Personalized learning path
Each child is unique. Our curriculum, experienced staff, excellent student-teacher ratio and technology enable our daycare to provide truly personalized education for each child.

📲 Pedagogical management solution to track child’s development
Finnish pedagogical management solution, Kindiedays, connects the daycare and home and shoes the daily developmental progress of your child’s learning.
