Featuring a globalised Finnish curriculum (in English)
It’s a fact – Finland rates as one of the best education systems in the world. Educators know it, but parents are often surprised to find out. In PISA scores Finland consistently performs better than all European countries (including the UK), out-performing the United States too.
Kipinä provides an enhanced globalised version of the Finnish curriculum for early childhood education, merging play-based learning with focused instruction methodology to guide children to scaffolded learning outcomes through play and fun. The kids don’t know they’re learning but parents easily see the incredible way their children develop.
Kipinä breaks down the Finnish curriculum into very detailed weekly plans for every age group from 4 months to 6 years providing teachers with valuable resources and concrete tools.
Using a dedicated in-classroom app, teachers mark attendance, report daily activities, track each child’s development and share photos, notes and videos with parents. Meanwhile parents use their app to access all this information and to automatically check their children in and out of the preschool or nursery.
All your children, staff and parent records, payroll, and lesson plans are easily accessible in a super-user friendly dashboard. Each child’s progress is quietly monitored and tracked to bring out the best in every child.
In the month before your open your nursery or preschool we send our Academic Director or Head Trainer to you, where she will be embedded with your academic staff for 5 to 8 days when she will fully train them on how to deliver the Kipinä program.
We have hands-on experience setting up, launching and managing nurseries and preschools, so we know exactly what needs to happen every day. We provide you with a wide range of documented support including; an Operations Manual, Policies and Procedures Guide, Staff Handbook and a range of templates to use.
