Sunshine has been under new management since 2014 and their approach to English teaching has been transformed. The daycare centre and preschool offer an English programme reviewed under the supervision of our native English speaking teachers. With the new approach to teaching we are providing the children a profound basis for further English learning at primary school. Most of the children in Sunshine preschool continue to the Finnish International School of Tampere (FISTA).
