FinlandWay® opens a new preschool in Casablanca, Morocco

Starting from September 2021 Madison Academy offers a complete and authentic Early Education experience from Finland in the Lotissement Bassatine Oulfa, Casablanca.

The fourth FinlandWay® unit in Morocco, Madison Academy FinlandWay®, combines the Moroccan national education curriculum with the Finnish approach. The programme is based on the latest Finnish curriculum, and designed by experts from the University of Helsinki and localised for the needs of Moroccan students.

A holistic view of learning

The founder of Madison Academy FinlandWay®, Ms. Sara Kazbouz, set up the school to be a welcoming, happy and dynamic place of learning. The trilingual programme enables children to acquire a skill set that not only builds a solid foundation for traditional academic subjects but also develops the all-important 21st century skills and intrinsic motivation of students.

“Creativity, critical thinking, teamwork and communication are also key skills that we work on every day at the school. Together, we help children to become lifelong learners and leaders of tomorrow. They will acquire the best start to be ready to innovate, act and defend their ideas and projects, and act responsibly and sustainably.”

“We are excited to welcome Madison Academy FinlandWay® to our growing network of top preschools in Morocco”

“All of our four partner schools in the country are doing fantastic work every day in transforming early education for the better and providing the best beginnings for children. We look forward to this cooperation to bring the world’s leading system to an ever larger number of children and families with the most up-to-date methodology and inspiring programme for the new generation.” preschools in Morocco”

Previous FinlandWay® Schools in the country have been well received by parents and students – in this year’s Parent Feedback Survey 100% found the impact of the programme to be positive or very positive on their child. 97% of parents would recommend FinlandWay® to other families.

Madison Academy FinlandWay®, located in Boulevard Alcharaf, Lotissement Bassatine Oulfa, Casablanca, is currently accepting enrolments and a grand opening is scheduled to take place in the autumn of 2021.
