The HEI Schools Toolkit is localizable, research-based and customer-friendly. Parents see the changes in their children and enrollment has increased by 15% in the early childhood program since we started using the program.

The HEI Schools Toolkit was a game-changer for Spectrum’s kindergarten program in more ways than one. From a business perspective, the Toolkit’s marketing materials and international appeal boosted the school’s reputation. From an education perspective, the Toolkit’ pedagogical materials and activities transformed the way its teachers taught. From a holistic perspective, Osama says, “everyone gets their rights.” Children get the right to play and learn, teachers get the right to teach in a suitable way for their age groups, and parents get the right to be involved in their children’s education. It is truly international Finnish education at its best.
