Joyful learning through play

Joyful learning through play

In Finland children start kindergarten at age 6 and kindergarten is all about play. The Finnish wisdom is ‘Those things you learn without joy you will forget easily.' Nothing that brings six year olds more joy than playing. More structured learning does not start until age 7 and the Finns have been topping the world scales on learning performance at ages 15.
