Our Story

A couple of years ago the founders Jessi and Milla worked as teachers in the Finnish American Kindergarten. They loved working with children and were sad that so much time and focus was taken from the children and spent managing manual practices. They also felt that the communication with the families was too scattered and broad, and there was no smooth path to communicate the activities and children’s important moments in real time. This could not be the way a high quality kindergarten in Finland should work. Why can we not use modern mobile and digital tools to ease the work load, get more time for the children and involve parents? They asked themselves.

Milla and Jessi started to search the market but found nothing but solutions mainly focusing on administration and use via PC. Not solutions that would really bring together all the daily activities with the children and parents. But they did not give up the dream. Instead they decided to setup a start-up company and create the solution themselves – Kindiedays was born. Having been teachers themselves, it was clear that Kindiedays should have the child in the center and focus on the users.

For pragmatic reasons the first version of Kindiedays focused on solving the needs for the daily routines and communication with the families. Soon it became clear that there was an even stronger need to take children's learning to a new level. Empower educators to use the curriculum in the daily work with the children, make observations and create pedagogical documentation.

Now Kindiedays 2.0 is launched and supports educators, families and children collaborate in all daily activities related to the learning and wellbeing of the children. Kindiedays is available in Finnish, English and Spanish and sold in Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Asia with a focus on private and international nurseries and kindergartens. 

All children deserve high quality early childhood education and care to get the best start in life !
