The educational method of Dr. Maria Montessori is based on self-directed activity and hands-on learning in a specially prepared environment.

Montessori Community is a high-quality international Montessori daycare in Helsinki, Finland. It is designed to meet the developmental needs of the children aged 15 months-6 years old. We are one of the few English Montessori daycares in Helsinki.

Our Montessori Community feels like a cozy home, where your children enjoy personalized attention by our friendly and well-qualified teachers.

Montessori Community is a safe place for exploration, place where the child has a freedom to move without barriers or fear of being told to stop. As the child explores prepared environment he satisfies his natural curiosity, begins to build a sense of confidence in his ability to discover the world. 

All items in the environment are scaled to the childs size, including furniture, shelves, utensils, dishware, cleaning implements and the Montessori materials themselves.

Montessori nursery school – bright and attractive colors, natural materials, fascinating cultural objects and interesting pictures on the walls – all offer the children complex sensory and intellectual experiences.

The programs of our international daycare in Helsinki, Finland are carried out in English, which offers a possibility to lay down a sound foundation for English from a very early age. Our Community offers English Montessori preschool education.

English speaking kindergarten is a wonderful opportunity for your children to develop good language skills.

  • "We have been extremely pleased with the school for our 2 year old daughter.   I think the Montessori system, and the team's teaching style, is great for anyone who wants their children to spend their days in a balanced mix of learning and play, with a focus on building competence and social skills to the child's own natural level." 


  • "I would recommend the program since it helps to build the child's self-confidence. Teachers are friendly, they were very affectionate towards my son, especially during his adjustment period. Also they were careful of his development and open to dialogue with me at any occasion. My son started to be even more interested in the daily chores, like setting up the table. Also he likes to sit down while working on something. He also became more interested in children and more confident approaching them."


  • "The environment at the Montessori Community is peaceful, friendly and welcoming. Everyday I was confident that my child was safe, learning and eating healthy. I like the type of play and learning that takes place at MIC, the station system is really nice too. Appreciation for organization is present and my child is more independent in terms of putting on clothes, eating and putting toys away."


  • "My children have thrived during their time at the MIC. They learned useful life skills and have developed socially. I love the individualised attention, the teachers do a wonderful job working with the children on their own individual skills and learning. I loved the parent teacher conference also! They provide a unique service for children at this age."
