Our groups

At Touhula, children are divided into small groups during the day. This aims at ensuring that each child is seen and heard as an individual. We create a learning environment that allows for the children to practice their interaction and social skills. Small group activities support the independence, involvement, and playing skills of the children. This also gives the early education staff a genuine opportunity to be present, to react to the needs of individual children, and to teach them emotional skills.
Please contact the group directly in matters relating to the everyday activities of your child such as:
• absences from the daycare and changes in the hours of care
• a special diet, if any
• changed contact details.
