Finland leads the world in early childhood education!
After 12 months as franchisee architects in collaboration with a high caliber company, we are very pleased to deliver our 7th Kipinä Nursery and pre-school project.
The kindergarten Kipinä is committed to the reliance on safety, aesthetics, and function. While renovating old buildings bought by the franchisee, Kipinä international commits to: Evacuating a floor in less than 8 seconds, developing child-proof materials, double holding pen lock systems entrances, anti-slip and anti-bacterial threading steps, high IP of electrical sockets, door handles at 1.5 m above ground level, and much more.
We aim to "build a healthier future for the kids" by going green whenever it is possible!” With certified low/0 VOC painting and flooring, low dual-flush toilets for water efficiency, solar panels, converting waste materials into reusable objects, rain water collectors, energy efficient low-e glass for indoors and outdoors locations.
Finnish ECEC is based on an integrated approach to care, education, and teaching- following the “educare” model. Critically, teachers must support the development of children’s play with a systematic and goal-oriented approach by either guiding it from the outside or participating within it.

Behind the scenes of a fun-filled childhood experience, our enthusiastic and qualified teachers quietly track the development of every child, recording their progress over nearly one hundred key indicators that support our six major domains. Kipina is today the fastest growing name in its field.
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.
Kipina takes the best of what Finland has to offer, and improves it even further with up-to-the-minute teaching practices based on scientific research and structured learning through focused instruction – making it easy for kids to transition into any school. We combine play based learning with small class sizes, safe, clean and clutter free environments to give your child an amazing experience.
The instruction supports and utilises children’s natural curiosity and desire to experiment. The instruction takes into account children’s developing skills, interests and strengths as well as their needs for individual support. In addition, the instruction is based on the objectives set for learning environments, transversal competences and pedagogical activity.
Teachers have the duty to secure the preconditions for playing, supervise the play in a suitable way, and ensure that each child gets an opportunity to participate in playing together according to their skills and capabilities.Critically, teachers must support the development of the children’s play with a systematic and goal-oriented approach by either guiding it from outside or participating in it.
Behind the scenes of a fun-filled childhood experience, our enthusiastic and qualified teachers quietly track the development of every child, recording their progress over nearly hundred key indicators that support our six major domains. This allows Kipina to keep parents fully informed; to identify any early learning difficulties and address them; and to ensure that every child is helped to learn in the way that best works for that child.
