Pre-primary education is part of the life-long learning path that begins at home and in early childhood education, and continues after pre-primary education in basic education.
Pre-primary education aims to promote children’s development and learning facilities, as well as to boost their social skills and healthy self-esteem together with their families. Pre-primary education is obligatory, goal-oriented and based on Lempäälä’s pre-primary education curriculum. A learning plan will be compiled for all children together with the children and their parents.
In pre-primary education, children experience and learn new things as part of a peer group. Pre-primary education consists of learning modules—of various scope and implementation—that are based on the children's interests as well as on pre-primary education's shared goals. In pre-primary education, learning takes place largely through play, and there is always time for play during the pre-primary education day. In addition to play, different experiential and operational approaches offer experiences and boost the children's motivation to learn.

The key course of action in preschool education is play. There is time for play during the preschool day, and learning is largely done through play. In addition to play, experiential and functional working methods provide experiences and strengthen children's motivation to learn. Pre-primary education is an integrated teaching consisting of different kinds of learning modules of different dimensions and implemented in different ways. The starting point for the implementation of learning modules is children's interests and common goals set for pre-primary education.
