OUR PHILOSOPHY

Kindergarten Ankkalampi is a private kindergarten where children’s well-being, high-quality everyday life and functional bilingualism are our main priority. At the same time, it is a workplace for skilled and motivated staff and a choice for parents who are committed to an educational partnership and investing in their children, where children, staff and parents interact closely with each other.  Ankkalampi offers children a safe environment for growth and activity, where pedagogical teaching takes place in the child’s mother tongue, while simultaneously the children are taught a basic understanding of functional bilingualism.

FUNCTIONAL BILINGUALISM - THE EASY WAY FOR YOUR CHILD TO LEARN THE LANGUAGE!

Ankkalampi kindergartens offer a safe growing and operating environment, where pedagogical teaching takes place in the child’s mother tongue. At the same time children will learn and gain an understanding of functional bilingualism. Functional bilingualism is a model of foreign language acquisition in which a language is adopted by using it in natural contexts and meaningful situations. Functional bilingualism does not mean complete bilingualism, but language is acquired through practical experience. The language to be adopted is not the object of language teaching but it is used as a teaching tool. The aim is to learn the everyday use of another language through instructions and activities (eg play, songs, and rhymes). Improving knowledge of the culture of a foreign language and bringing language groups closer together are also goals.

LOCAL KINDERGARTEN - TO MAKE EVERYDAY LOGISTICS EASIER!

To ensure the smooth running of everyday life, choose a kindergarten that is sensibly located in a well-connected public transport, workplace, or home. It is important that the family’s daily routine stays smooth even when the parents are at work. So, think about how much time you are willing to spend every day, for example, for travelling!
