Post by jitta78 » Thu Nov 19, 2020 1:28 pm

Hi all! Is there english kindergartens in Helsinki that has some development programs? Reading, counting, english language skills, music (piano) or painting? Maybe some separate classes for kids (not in Kindergarten)?

Also are there chinese language classes for kids (english language)? Maybe some logics, robotics? Anything solid and in english language?

For future we don't want to learn finnish, are there schools without a need to learn it?

Overall interested in references in developments classes that actually have some structured teaching system without playing attitude?

Why do you want your children to learn Chinese instead of Finnish when you are living in Finland?

Not speaking Finnish will exclude them from most university studies and most of the job market in Finland.

Thank you for answering! Could you maybe share some information about some pre-school development classes (besides kindergarten)? If you know
would really appreciate a local feedback. What i mean is that if kid has some talent in music or other things are there places to develop it? I heard that the program is fixed for everyone and it worries me

Thank you
