What's happening in Perheentalo?

Open play time 

Play times are open for families to come play and meet other families. Sometimes we have organized program as well where the children can join if they want. Program can be for example handicraft or teddy clinic. Besides playing, families can have their own snack and a cup of tea or coffee.

We offer temporary day care for kids. It means  parents can bring their kids for us, if they need time to take care of chores and tasks, I.e. Official or bureaucratical business or if they just need a little break for themselves. In the "kid-park" we play with the kids and take care of them until parents come to pick them up. Kid-park is on saturdays, eight times a year. 

"Kid-park" works in collaboration with other institutes Siilinjärvi red cross local and  chuch of Siilinjärvi.
