Bringing the Finnish preschool model to the whole world
Milla Kokko, CEO
HEI Schools was co-founded by the University of Helsinki with experienced educational & design experts in Finland to address the increasing global demand for high quality early childhood education (ECE).
The HEI Schools ECE model i.e. the HEI curriculum is derived from the research-based Finnish educational approach. The HEI approach not only includes excellent curriculum and high-quality teacher training, but is also supported by Nordic space design, carefully selected learning materials, an international community, and operational support for the local partner. These building blocks of ECE are accessed differently through our 3 available products: HEI Learning Centers, HEI Curriculum, and HEI Club.
The pedagogical perspective of HEI Schools is based on decades of academic research on how children learn, and how teachers are educated. These academic studies as well as ongoing new research work are integral for the success of the HEI Schools concept.
Embracing Nordic values of accessibility and openness, the HEI Schools mission is to make high quality Finnish early childhood education available globally for children, teachers, parents and operators. At HEI, we feed creative minds and raise children who will not only adapt to the changing world but change the world themselves!
