Kalli-kalli will open a new kindergarten building in Uus-Veerenni

In September 2023 Kalli-kalli  kindergarten will open its new building in Uus-Veerenni residential quarter. The owner and builder of the kindergarten building is Merko Ehitus Eesti.

In the new building we will open four daycare groups to our smallest kids and six kindergarten groups. Many groups have their own specialty so that every family can find an educational environment which best meets the needs of their child.  In addition to  Estonian groups we shall open an English group as well as an English-Estonian and Estonian-English language immersion groups.  Besides that we shall also open a Montessori group in cooperation with the Estonian Montessori Association https://www.montessorieesti.ee.

Kalli-kalli Uus-Veerenni kindergarten will also become a community center of the residential quarter where we shall offer various services to families including a diverse choice of hobby groups to children as well as to adults, rooms for children’s birthday parties, summer kindergarten service and summer camps for children. We also plan to offer  physiotherapist’s service for babies and to opn the speech therapist’s and psychologist’s cabinets.  

Kalli-kalli Uus-Veerenni kindergarten will be ready in summer and it will open its doors for children on the 4th September 2023.

The building ceremony was held on the 10th February. See the pictures here.

Erasmus+ project "The Power of Reading"

Our kindergarten participates in the  Erasmus+ project "The Power of Reading" which is a cooperation project between preschools from Spain, Iceland, Greece, Estonia, Croatia and Italy.

Early reading with children plays a significant role in children’s development, as it influences the whole development of the child (cognitive, language-communication, social, emotional). Using books in the teaching process fosters children's imagination, creativity, and a better understanding of their own emotions and other people’s emotions. The main goal of our project is to increase the use of literature in early childhood education as an element in children´s integral development: reading competence, emotional intelligence, naturalistic intelligence, communicative skills, digital competence, problem-solving skills and social acceptance.

The project will gather preschool teachers and give them an opportunity to participate in Learning/Teaching/Training meetings in which they will learn about subjects and how they influence reading and a child’s integrated development, to hear about the scientific frontlines by university researchers, to participate in workshops, to visit preschools where teachers and children will show new and exciting methods and to discuss the subjects with their international colleagues.
