Finnish early childhood education implements child-centered pedagogy. Child-centered pedagogy focuses on children’s needs and interests; the child has the right to learn things according to their own potential. Furthermore, children are seen as active agents who construct their own knowledge. Therefore, knowledge is not transferred as such; children build, or construct, it themselves.

Children learn things from each other and adults through interaction. Playing, discussing and engaging with others, comparing different views, and expressing their own thoughts help children process things more deeply and from multiple perspectives. In addition, children learn social skills and to work constructively with other people.

In Finland play is the most important pedagogical activity in the early years. Children learn multiple different abilities through play: they learn a wide range of skills, develop their social abilities, imagination, creativity, etc. For the child, play is a natural way of being, acting, perceiving, and interpreting the world around them. In addition, educators have the opportunity to use play as a pedagogical tool: they can intentionally create learning environments that aim at advancing the child’s learning in the early years.
