I am an educator myself and I've been thrilled with this place! My daughter loves coming to "school" and we are so happy with Miss Sofia and the management. We are excited for our son to attend in a few years. Love Kipina to the moon and back!"

"The Kipina family has been such a big support to me and my family. After being home with my son for 6 months, I was very apprehensive about leaving him in a nursery. The integration week was a huge help to us both, and the lovely staff have been great at communicating what he’s doing every day. I love reading his daily activities book and picking up his art work. He is breast fed on demand and I wasn’t sure how well he would do taking a bottle and in a new environment. With the support of the Kipina staff, we have been able to pace feed my son at nursery and he is doing amazingly well. The staff has been so supportive and my son is thriving in their care."

The best place to Start is at the Finnish

Educators talk about Finland, but people are surprised to learn that Finland consistently rates as one of the best education systems in the world. In fact, many governments are studying Finland’s success. Countries who are working on education reform such as the UAE, Qatar and KSA, have all partnered with Finland to launch Finnish schools. In PISA scores Finland consistently performs better than all European countries (including the UK), and the United States, and has better retention of students at all levels of education.





"In the last 18 months I've opened 2 Kipina Preschools in Abu Dhabi. I'm delighted with the market response and the way the business is growing. I didn't want to be another of the 200+ British preschools here. Kipina is unique - the only Finnish-inspired nursery. It stands out from the crowd and people love it."


Ali Irfan, Master Franchisor, United Arab Emirates, and now a Director of Kipina Worldwide.
