Free play and individual learning impulses

During free play, the children develop social, emotional and intellectual skills, while the teachers also provide individual learning impulses. In this way, the children learn both while they lead their own play and when they take part in supervised play – they benefit enormously from this balance of free and specifically supervised activities. Our childcare staff respond to the developing needs and interests of the children, observe them continuously and provide conscious, caring, strength-oriented and positive guidance.

Creativity, movement and holistic learning

Engaging in outdoor play and exercise, maintaining a varied, healthy diet, alongside artistic and creative endeavors, and exploring yearly themes and educational subjects are integral parts of our daily routine. Drawing from our experiences, we have crafted an independent curriculum inspired by the successful Finnish model. At OBS, we adopt a holistic, progressive approach to education, continuously informed by the latest scientific research. This approach extends to setting educational objectives for preschoolers.


Early Literacy through language comprehension (narrative and visual culture)


Personal, Social and Emotional Competences


Discovering how numbers represent quantities

The World around us

People, living beings, environment & nature

Physical Development

Control and coordination, self-confidence, motor skills

Creativity, Imagination and Music

Cultural and artistic awareness

Holistic learning and genuine motivation.

This education-oriented approach does not contradict the concept of play-based learning. Quite the opposite: our learning opportunities always meet the children in the real world and introduce them to kindergarten and school in a playful way. From the very beginning, we focus on the desire to learn and the joy of trying things out and pursuing their own ideas.
