The most rewarding part of being a Learning Center partner is bringing a piece of Finland to San Rafael through HEI Schools, as well receiving daily support from the HEI Schools San Rafael team.
Owner, HEI Schools San Rafael, Argentina
I was looking for a school that embraces the whole child and views them as an individual. My partner wanted a school that allows children to be children, to pursue their imagination and to participate in free play. HEI Schools hit all the marks for both of us.
