We welcome all children into the creative learning playschool, regardless of their first language. Every child’s own culture and language are celebrated daily at playschool, and provide us with relevant opportunities to broaden an understanding of the world around us.
Creative Learning Playschool is a bilingual English-Finnish early learning centre. English is the primary language but for those who would like to choose bilingual option will receive 8-10 hours of Finnish per week with a native speaker.
A second language
CLP is a great option for parents who would like their child to learn a second language.
We use a variety of methods to support and introduce English such as picture cards, Makaton signs, textile and visual resources, and of course through lots of song, dance, drama, and conversation.
While English and Finnish instruction change on a weekly basis, the children are exposed to both languages every day. We believe it is important that the children develop a high standard of language skills in both English and Finnish. Through speaking, singing, poems, stories and role-play, the children acquire a rich vocabulary in both languages.
