ESPOO CULTURAL PATH
Culture Call makes art and culture part of early childhood education in Espoo.
Art and culture professionals visit day-care centres to perform or guide activities planned for children. In addition, there are Culture Calls for educators, during which art and cultural actors train staff in utilising the opportunities provided by art in early childhood education, also outside of cultural visits.
