Our Unique Approach - Finnish Education for the World

Guided Play-Based Learning with an Emphasis on Character Development & Big School Preparation

At Kipinä, our teachers are experts in Finnish Pedagogy, having received university-level training and certification. They use an engaging, play-based approach to teaching that children adore. Our curriculum is truly global, and our lesson plans get kids ready for any K-12 setting, whether it's in a private international school, an IB school, a Cambridge school, or a national school. We make sure our students have all the skills they need in literacy, numeracy, and 21st-century competencies.

Since we can't predict the future, at Kipinä, we put a strong emphasis on building good character as the foundation for all our work and relationships.







Global Perspective with Finnish Foundation

Finland's Approach to Education is Celebrated Around the World

In the global education ranking called the PISA scores, Finland consistently stands out as one of the world's top performers.

It's worth noting that Finland surpasses several countries, including the USA, the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Norway, Spain, Denmark, and Sweden, just to name a few.

While the PISA scores are especially helpful to governments they do not directly correlate with early childhood education. The part of Finland's approach to education that makes the biggest impact is teacher training.

All of our Kipinä teachers are trained and certified in Finnish Pedagogy, ensuring that we start with the best approach to education.

Kipinä Was Designed and Tested on Children from more than 100 nationalities and proven in 15 Countries, and 7 languages over 8 Years

Our curriculum is compatible with worldwide programs like the International Baccalaureate and Cambridge, along with the UK's EYFS and various American programs.

Kipinä kids enjoy a diverse, multilingual curriculum that gives them an exceptional start in life.

If you join a preschool franchise with hundreds of schools you become a number too.

At Kipinä we pride ourselves on working with select franchise partners and ensuring they have generous exclusive zones. We make sure we have the time to support them and we don't put our franchisees in competition with each other.

It's common sense.
