Activities for families with children

In the mornings, playground instructors organise different kinds of supervised activities as well as outdoor recreational and sports events.

Children and parents can use the toys and equipment available in the playgrounds. Park activities vary according to the weekly rhythm and individual profile of the area.

Family houses organise various activity sessions, group activities and courses for all families with children in Helsinki. The family houses distribute information on child care, upbringing and child development.

Parks and family houses offer families opportunities to meet with other families in the same situation in life and to share experiences of the everyday life of families with children.

Parents can participate in planning and carrying out activities together with the instructors.

The playgrounds and family houses organise, among other things,

- ‘happily on the move’ sessions

- father & child activities

- language courses for immigrant parents

- sing-along mornings

- family clubs

- sleep guidance

- baby massage

- infant family activities
