Finnish early childhood education company Kide Science has received a strategic investment from international education financing company KSI Education.

Kide Science has developed a preschool education model that supports the development of young children’s scientific thinking through play-based learning. Equipping children with science process skills before school has been shown to result in better learning outcomes.

“We share the same vision and values for preparing young children’s scientific thinking, and Kide Science provides [an] excellent opportunity for students in their early years,” stated KSI Education. “We look forward to working with Kide Science closely over the coming years.”

The pedagogical model behind Kide Science has recently generated a lot of interest in Asia, where the Finnish company has started teacher training in China and Singapore, and opened a two-storey science centre in Malaysia.

Kide Science’s playful approach to early learning is based on rigorous academic research by Ph.D. Jenni Vartiainen. Read more about it in our feature article.
