HEI Schools and your family


At HEI Schools, we promote the active participation of both children and parents. It is important to create an atmosphere in which everyone’s thoughts are heard and everyone feels appreciated. Collaboration with families during early childhood education is important to us, and we want to make sure that families have the opportunity to follow, and be an integral part of, their child’s learning journey at HEI Schools. When your child joins a HEI School, the whole family joins the HEI community!




Many elements go into a child’s early learning experience - from inspiring, rigorous teacher training and a safe environment to the tools and methods we use. All these things help to support your child’s individual learning. We believe that learning moments are found and created everywhere. A day at a HEI Schools preschool will give you a sneak peak into your child’s day-to-day life with us.


Our early childhood education is based on well-established, deep research. We know that the first seven years of a child’s life are the most important. Our partner and co-founder, the University of Helsinki, works with us to create the most up-to-date curriculum content that makes sure that children will learn the essential skills of life while cultivating curiosity, creativity and confidence.


The cornerstone of everything that we do at HEI Schools comes from our five core values: Curiosity and Creativity, Active Participation, a Culture of Trust, a Sustainable Way of Living, and Learning Everywhere and All the Time. Nurturing and emphasizing these values creates an engaging, active and effective early childhood learning environment for children, parents, and teachers.
