First, in this book, we describe early childhood education in Finland generally and the national directions that guide the work in ECEC centres. Second, we concentrate on describing playful learning (children aged three to seven) in different learning areas like language, art, mathematics and motor skills. Additionally, we describe the learning of children under three years of age and at the end of the book, we describe practical activities for each learning area. Through play, children learn, develop, and acquire a foundation for lifelong learning.
