Places I'd absolutely LOVE to live in if I have kids some day are Käpylä and Kumpula. Extremely beautiful, nice and peaceful neighborhoods. They have both, nice wooden houses and apartment blocks of excellent quality. Don't know about your price range though.
Lots of both of these in Käpylä.
Töölö is ok.
Ullanlinna (I live there woohoo
), Eira etc. are extremely nice, but perhaps a tad expensive for a family in your situation (kids and all).
Puistola is pretty nice. I lived in Laajasalo for a few years and some parts of it are pretty ok.
There's something about käpylä in English.^^
You can see how Laajasalo i mentioned is located in that wikipedia page. Though this one looks to be close, it's not as well connected as the others. It's an island, with one bridge out of there.
You can also see the location of the area in the map and compare the distances from the places to Vuosaari one right here:
