About KiddiFeet Oy
We are always looking at fresh new approaches to learning and will change with the world. Our goal is to use the theory of multiple intelligences to allow children to learn about themselves and how they fit in their environment. They will also learn what matters to them and to others socially and naturally, how to interact with peers, develop self-confidence, build self-esteem, and participate in the setting. Our school will be designed to accommodate these intelligences in an open planned environment with good staff – child ratios.

The approach

why kiddifeet

KiddiFeet 'taking small steps, in a new world' is our motto and here is why.
Our staff will be helping the children develop in the ever-changing world we live in today. We will take the children's hands and let the children lead the way on their individual journeys, into the new world. We introduce the children to the world safely, so they can experience and adjust to the world at their own pace, feeling safe to take risks with our guidance and reassurance. We with the children, will create video diaries of their experiences and capture their whole learning story for them to share with their loved ones.
We are extremely passionate about child development and strive to help families achieve success with their children's developmental progress. We are devoted to giving high standards of care, a healthy working environment, and a relaxed space for both staff and children!
