Bringing the Finnish preschool model to the whole world


HEI Schools is an international preschool concept that brings the excellence of Finnish early childhood education to schools all over the world. HEI is founded in partnership with the University of Helsinki.

 

highly researched preschool model with proven results

At HEI Schools, we combine playful curiosity and the freedom for exploring with deep scientific understanding about how children learn.

Children are hardwired to learn through play. Numerous studies show that children who learn through inquiry and play go on to succeed academically. Our approach and methods are based on the latest research in education and pedagogy, and they are rigorously tested in preschools across Finland.

 

the Finnish preschool model has been ranked the best in global comparison.

What makes us different? the FINNISH  EDUCATION MODEL successfully combines EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE and academic competence.

Competitive, performance and test based models are not good for children. At HEI Schools we promote comprehensive growth, learning, development and well-being of children, and provide a rich foundation for the progress of their emotional development, skills and competence.
