Welcome to the Philadelphia Suomi-koulu! Tervetuloa! The Philadelphia Suomi-koulu is a Finnish language school for children, founded in 1999. We also familiarize children with Finnish culture and customs. We meet one Sunday a month at the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia. This is also a great venue to keep in touch with the Finnish parents community and gain parenting support.
- teaching Finnish language and expanding students’ knowledge of vocabulary and grammar
- keeping Finnish culture and heritage alive by teaching facts about Finland, Finnish songs and games, folk dances, arts and crafts
- celebrating Finnish holidays
Presently Suomi-koulu has students ranging from 3 to 13 years of age. The school is divided into two groups by age: Younger children (3-6 yrs) and older children (7 and up).
