What is FinlandWay®

Our methodology

Our methodology combines the play-based, phenomenon-led and participatory pedagogical methodology currently in use in Finland and regularly updated based on the latest scientific findings. The methodology allows children to have joyful early learning experiences that develop both their cognitive, non-cognitive and socio-emotional skills and general academic and social preparedness.

Our curriculum

Our curriculum covers lesson plans and progressive, age-specific learning targets for ages 1-6.  Our curriculum is based on the 2017 national academic curriculum in Finland, covering:

  • Languages and Stories (Alphabetisation and Literacy, Communication)

  • Exploration (Numeracy and Mathematics, Natural and Social Sciences)

  • Arts and performing

  • Shared Well-Being (Motor Skills, Physical and Mental Well-being)

  • Our society (Socioemotional and Citizenship Skills)

Values of responsibility, tolerance, empathy, sustainable development and inclusion are deeply embedded in our curriculum design.

Teacher training

Teacher training and educators' continuing professional development is of key importance - and at the heart of the Finnish education excellence. FinlandWay teachers go through a structured training process and continue developing as teaching professionals on the job, regularly connecting with the leading experts in the field following their initial training.


The latest mobile tracking technologies allow us to monitor quality and create a community of Best Practice. We are using the latest mobile and online solutions to connect parents and the schools to follow and support children's learning regardless of time and place.
