Your potential future colleagues have this to say about working in our kindergarten:

"The kindergarten is non-profit and it shows in the way it operates. The money is clearly used for the benefit of the children and the employees are also taken care of."

"I have the freedom to plan and carry out my work as I see it best."  

"This is a workplace with a good working atmosphere."  

Espoo Englanninkielinen Leikkikoulu's kindergartens are run by an association. The main task of the association is to provide good working conditions for the staff to provide high-quality early childhood education and pre-school education.

We believe that care and well-being of staff is fundamental to children's education, and therefore the well-being of the staff guides all of our decisions.

We offer a respectful and caring workplace and good working conditions for early childhood education and pre-school professionals and students.

As an employer, we are responsible, we care about our employees and our work community, and we follow the development of our industry. From 2030, the Early Childhood Education Act requires that in kindergartens, at least two-thirds must have a university degree. At Espoo Englanninkielinen Leikkikoulu, this educational structure is already in place.

We'd love to have you as a colleague!
