The Fox Nest is a private daycare with a preschool group based on supporting the child’s everyday life, utilising English language and Finnish nature. Our purpose is to create a strong language base, in both English and Finnish, for the children on the learning path that they will begin. The children will have an opportunity to continue in an English class at Kortepohja School.

The preschool group structure is 5 and 6 year-olds together. The daily activity time for preschool education is from 8:30 to 12:30. In addition, families are offered morning and afternoon care. Preschool education is carried out in the indoor and outdoor areas of the daycare and in nearby parks and forests. The nearby forests offer the opportunity to organize preschool education in nature.




We offer high-quality preschool education that takes into account the goals of the national preschool curriculum, the goals of the Jyväskylä City Preschool Curriculum, and the objectives of The Fox Nest preschool, and puts them into practice in child-specific ways such as playing, singing and moving, with emphasis on Finnish Nature and English Language.

The preschool teacher working with this group is Elina Tuikka, she’s a licensed art therapist with a Master’s degree in child development.  If necessary, the group also includes an assistant.

Preschool education is free for families. If you need longer hours, you can apply them as well, but those are then payable.
