Children and families

SMY organizes a wide range of activities for children and families.

Taking part in the clubs supports the development of language skills, and can encourage creativity and inclusion. 

We have clubs in Finnish, English and Russian. Developing native language skills helps children learn new languages and reinforces their cultural identities. 

Both Finnish and immigrant children are welcome to join our clubs. The clubs take place at the International Meeting Point and club fees are 15 € / semester.  It is possible to join the clubs year-round.
