The wooden kindergarten would become both in Finnish and Swedish.
Helsinki is planning a new kindergarten in Pitäjänmäki for 224 children.
The Board of Education and Training left the project plan for the kindergarten on the table at its previous meeting, but will still meet on Thursday to discuss this issue alone. The matter will be decided later by the city government.
The new kindergarten would have places for both Swedish- and Finnish-speaking children.
It would replace the Swedish-speaking Daghemmet Sockenstugan on Konalantie, which currently seats 37 children. In addition, the city could develop other uses for temporary daycare facilities on Kangaspellontie, which currently have space for 80 Finnish-speaking children.
However, the new kindergarten would become much larger than the two, as the city calculates that there will be more need for places in early childhood education in the area in the near future.
From kindergarten a two-storey wooden house is planned for Kutomokuja next to the Tennis Center and the Tali outdoor area. Today there is a parking lot on site.
The city would come to the premises as a tenant. The rent is estimated to cost about 600,000 euros a year.
The kindergarten is scheduled to be completed in January 2025.
