Why us?

Kalli-kalli is an international kindergarten located in Ülemiste City, a modern business district close to Tallinn city center.  We have altogether seven classes for different ages and with different study languages. We have three Estonian kindergarten classes (children from 3-6), one English kindergarten class (children from 3-6), one Estonian day-care group (children from 1.5 to 2) and one French class.   In the educational activities Kalli-kalli kindergarten follows the Estonian National Pre-School Curriculum.

We believe that the strengths of Kalli-kalli kindergarten are:
- the best and the happiest teachers;

- strong and exciting curriculum;  

- observation of the personal development of every child.

Why do we believe it?

  • We have always a strong competition for the teacher's job. Therefore we have the opportunity to select the best teachers to work with our children.
  • All our teachers pass the training "Happy teacher". Only together with a happy teacher the children can be happy in the kindergarten.
  • We give the child and the parents enough time for adapting with the kindergarten by applying a calm and smooth adaption methodology.
  • Our teachers love children and the children love them. Come and see yourself!
  • We encourage the teachers and  the parents to give feedback to each other in order to create a good communication between the kindergarten and the family.  
  • Our assistant teachers are dedicated to children. They have no other responsibilities in the kindergarten than working with the children. 

Educational activities
  • Our aim is to ensure that every child will be well prepared for a good school and that he/she will be doing well in the school.
  • We encourage children to mutual cooperation in study activities. In addition to teaching new knowledge we also develop humanity and communication skills of the children. 
  • Our study activities are playful and exciting which helps to preserve the child's interest in learning also in his/her future life. 
  • We have French lesson once a week in addition to the regular study activities.

Personal development of the child
  • Every year teachers prepare a thorough and personal e-portfolio of each child (which includes videos, photos and interviews).
  • Every spring teachers write a thorough progress report about every child.
  • Teachers observe the development of  every child and prepare study activities suitable to him/her.
  • We have small classes - up to 17 children in a class and at least two teachers working with them. 

And more... :)
  • Every Friday teachers send an e-mail to the parents of their class with an overview of the last week's activities together with some pictures .
