Description of Foster-home Ankanpesä (“Duck’s Nest”)
Ankanpesä is a large detached house on two floors with a genuinely homely feel, situated in a quiet area on the shores of Lake Saimaa but still easily accessible to the centre of Mikkeli and all of the amenities on offer there including several schools and educational institutions.
There is ample room for four children or young people in Ankanpesä. Common living areas upstairs include living room, dining area, kitchen, balcony, storerooms and a bathroom. Downstairs there are sauna, shower and a relaxation room with fireplace. Outside is a sheltered front courtyard and gardens to the rear of the property overlooking the lake.
Mikkeli has good opportunities for studying and leisure time activities. For example the beach is close by and the jogging trail runs between the grounds and the lake.
Our staff is trained and knowledgeable, and we have a long experience in child protection. We offer a safe environment in the semi rural neighbourhood of Tuppurala Services are nearby with excellent transport links.
Our values are openness, honesty and tolerance. We respect the close and peer-to-peer networks of children and adolescents, and we best support the child and the young to build a genuine identity.
We develop our operations and extend our expertise based on the feedback we receive.
