Finnish Startup brings the award-winning digital language learning service to kindergartens. The service enables English learning during the kindergarten day through play and games.

Tenava Kindergarten chain and Moomin Language School have started a co-operation where digital language learning has been integrated in the daily kindergarten routines. In the beginning, the service will be in use in five locations and scaled through the whole chain in the autumn. By now, children, parents and personnel have been really excited.

An unseen combination of digital tools and the Finnish early education pedagogy brings a unique way for children to learn languages in kindergartens. The solution offers possibility to develop language skills daily and weekly individually through playful social group lessons.

”We are so excited to co-operate with Moomin Language School and we highly value its strong pedagogic basis. One of the key elements at Tenava kindergartens are versatile and highquality early education. Moomin Language School offers an excellent value adding service and enables digitalization in suitable portions among the daily routines”, states Jonna Heikkilä, early education specialist at Tenava kindergartens.

”Best time to learn languages is when children are young and they have natural interest towards languages. In Finland we easily miss the opportunity. In addition to language skills early language learning comprehensively supports a child’s development. Positive effects can be seen later in life in school success, concentration, social skills and self-confidence”, tells Moomin Language School CEO Anu Guttorm.

Pedagogy based digital service and suitable equipment for children offers a whole new range of possibilities alongside traditional language learning. In addition to English children learn other languages in school as one language is not enough in the global world.
