The English Kindergarten of Lahti

The English Kindergarten of Lahti (LEK) has been highly recognized since 1970, for its excellent early childhood education. Every year around seventy-five children develop their English skills by hearing, speaking, and singing English, while also playing, creating art and learning about the variety of English speaking cultures.


Your child’s first rich English experience begins at age 3 (4) in the Junior group at The English Kindergarten of Lahti. The group always has a native English-speaking teacher who among other teachers help the children to build their vocabulary.

Children continue after Junior group or start fresh in the Senior group usually at the age of 4 to 5. In the Senior group we provide a safe, secure and welcoming learning environment for the children to grow as an individual and a responsible member of our community.

Afternoon group provides afternoon care and activities for preschoolers and first graders in English speaking environment. First graders and most of the preschoolers come from the Tiirismaan English classes but we also receive few children from Onnelantien pre-school.
