Your Play-Based Preschool

Our goal is to bring Finnish education excellence available to families all over the world! FinlandWay® Preschools are about children finding the joy of exploring. Learning is based on Finnish play-based participatory methodology matched with local learning goals and curriculum. We welcome parents to follow their preschool’s daily life through our unique learning tracking application.

This is What We Believe In

Happy Play-based Learning

Children are naturally curious and they love to explore new things. Through play-based methodology learning becomes meaningful and it creates deeper learning experiences. Our teachers are instructed to support and guide children to discover their natural love of and ability for life-long learning.

Safe and Purpose Designed

Inspiring Finnish classroom design supports childrens’ natural curiosity and creates a safe learning environment for children to explore, and play. Families can also follow their childrens’ development through our learning tracking application and keep up with daily learning goals.

Tested and Research Based

FinlandWay approach is based on the latest knowledge of education science and our team’s experience in Finnish kindergartens. FinlandWay® programme has been developed by PhD level experts and it has been tested and it’s operating on three continents.

Participatory Aproach

Children are agents of their own learning and their opinion should be heard and respected at age appropriate level. Teachers support children to communicate their ideas and opinions through their own means and encourage them to democratic decision making.

FinlandWay® Experience

“The format is organized and the daily planning is ready-to-go, which simplifies the teacher’s job. The program was flexible enough for us to adapt it without compromising the learning. It satisfied all of our expectations.”

— Rita, Pedagogical Consultant

“The kids and myself enjoyed every single lesson to the max. Every morning they asked to play with the characters that had come alive in their minds and hearts. It has been a joy and a pleasure to work with FinlandWay!”

— Vanessa, Teacher

“I was having difficulties constructing the body image in the children. We tried before, but the kids wouldn’t build interest around it. We achieved that with FinlandWay, and as an educator, that was the most meaningful result.”

— Gabriela, Teacher

“The training was essential to kickstart our work. The theory and the workshops with dynamic activities were a 10/10! Our group loved it and we all have learnt of a new way of looking at the child.”

— Angelica, School Director and mother
