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 hard-wired 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.
