The International Childcare and Education Centre

The ICEC has  8 centres, all of which are dedicated to early years education and childcare for children under the age of seven. The schools are situated in the Helsinki area (in Helsinki, Espoo and Inkoo).

Our approach to education is one which recognises the importance of both whole class teaching; (presenting the children with an exciting new concept or idea), and of giving the children the freedom to experiment and explore, using hands on activities to complete the learning process.
