We envision today’s
children as tomorrow’s
We believe in a planned and goal-oriented integration of care, upbringing and teaching. This means that Iglookids want to holistically support the growth, development and learning of children and thus promote overall welfare. Our holistic approach borrowed from Finnish education includes instilling the values of equality, equal opportunities, justice and fairness in the lives of the children. Iglookids teaches the children to live and thrive in a multicultural society and to appreciate the diversity. At our nursery, holistic development also includes-
• Advice and support for healthy nutrition
• Child growth and health monitoring app for the parents
• Equipment and facilities for physical activity and exercise
• Afternoon clubs for hobbies such as music, sport and art
Our vision is to be the nursery where supporting the holistic and age-appropriate development of children guides all activities and interaction with the parents.
Our mission is to utilize a Finland-based expert team and appropriate technologies to combine the best parts of Finnish early education with the international curricula and delivering it in each country according to the local requirements.
IglooKids specially focuses on delivering high quality pedagogy inspired by the Finnish system and helping discover each student’s individual strengths. We employ teachers qualified to the high Finnish standard, who can adjust the share of care, upbringing and teaching according to the situation and developmental stage of the child. When the basic needs and care of the child are well covered, the child will direct her attention towards other children, the environment and the activities.
To support both individual attention and discovery of individual strengths, we want to involve the parents in close cooperation with our nurseries. Iglookids supports the parents’ involvement as active stakeholders in their children’s growth, development and education. The parents’ active role is enabled by
• Hosting regular teacher-parent meetings
• Open house days for prospective students and parents to visit the nursery
• Easily available communication and feedback channels
• Ability to monitor the child’s development and health via a mobile app
• Community outreach activities, such as pop-up nursery days in residential communities or schools
For the benefit of the children and the nursery community, our teaching quality is continuously monitored by internal criteria and parental feedback.
