Lahti English Kindergarten

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


Your child’s first English enrichment experience begins at age 2 to 4 in the Junior Group. The group assists your child’s development of understanding of English, as the teachers immerse children by educating and responding only in English.

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

The After-School group provides care and activities for preschoolers and first graders in an English speaking environment. First graders and most of the preschoolers come from Tiirismaa’s English classes but we also receive a few children from Onnelantie’s pre-school.
