Finnish early education company Fun Academy is introducing the ‘Fun Learning’ approach in several kindergartens set to open in Beijing and other locations around China.

Fun Academy China, a joint venture with Fun Academy Finland, will open two new kindergartens in Beijing in September, and plans to open kindergartens in four additional locations around China in 2019.

The unique Fun Learning approach will be noticeable in the new Beijing kindergartens in everything from the design of the learning environments to the curriculum.

To implement the philosophy into practice, Fun Academy China has appointed six Finnish kindergarten teachers who will do so together with Fun Academy China’s pedagogical team, after undergoing intensive Fun Learning educator training in Fun Academy’s HQ in Finland during the summer.

“I am so excited to see how warmly Fun Learning is welcomed here among the Chinese parents and teachers,” says Sanna Lukander, CEO of Fun Academy. “We look forward to co-creating effective and Fun Learning experiences with the Fun Academy China team.”

More Finnish teachers are also expected to relocate to China next year, when new Fun Academy China kindergartens are set to open doors in other locations around China.
