Early childhood education and care (ECEC), pre-primary education, and primary education form a continuum that supports the child’s development and learning. It is fair to say that early childhood education builds a foundation for the life-long learning path in Finland.

Finland has, for a long time, had a strong emphasis on stress-free childhood. Early childhood education in Finland is informal, full of play and activities that are characteristic of children, and not school-like at all. Despite this non-academic and non-formal approach, Finnish early childhood education guarantees children excellent learning abilities. How is it done and where is Finland heading next in early childhood education?

This course helps you gain general insights into Finnish early childhood education. You will learn why and how Finnish early childhood education promotes children’s well-being, happiness, and health.
