Setlementti Puijola’s afternoon clubs, the most important things are the child’s safety, creativity and play. We make sure that the child can realize his creativity freely and independently. It is also important that in our club the child can rest and calm down after the school day. Setlementti Puijola has produced afternoon clubs for schoolchildren in Kuopio since autumn 2003. We operate as a service provider of afternoon clubs for the city of Kuopio.
You can get in touch with the club by calling the club’s phone. Please report your child’s possible absence by text message or by calling the club directly!

We respect the child’s own language and cultural background, lifestyle and family values. The values of the settlement movement are to accept differences regardless of skin color, gender or culture. By getting to know different cultures, we can increase children’s understanding and reduce prejudices.
The following values guide the operation`s of clubs:
safety, friendship, community spirit
creativity, acceptance of difference
strengthening a positive self-image
Our main partners are: City of Kuopio, Settlement Union, Savo Vocational and Adult College Sakky, Savonia AMK.
