The franchise path in a nutshell

Contact us

and schedule a call to get to know each other better. You’ll receive some reading material at this stage and get to bring us up to date on your business plan. A confidentiality agreement is signed.

A letter of intent

is normally signed after a background evaluation. The LOI includes more detailed and practical information about the future cooperation. Next, we’ll review the franchising terms.

The franchise contract

is provided to you and we will go through it before the final signatures from both ends. At this stage, we will officially announce the partnership through social media, websites and press releases.

System onboarding

is carried out prior to launching the programme in your school – you will get familiar with all aspects of FinlandWay® brand and operations and prepare for the big launch.

A grand opening

takes place in your  school, after the initial marketing campaign. You will be ready to start carrying out the curriculum and day to day operations, and have regular update and support meeting with us.

Words from our franchisees

“We believe that early years is a key to a child’s development. That’s the reason we are very delighted to be a FinlandWay® school. We share the same vision and thrive to make a difference.”

Nishant Garodia, Director, Garodia International FinlandWay®

Words from our franchisees

“I believe that being a FinlandWay® school brings enormous value to the children in our school and to the young generation of Tangier. We signed the agreement in the spring of 2020, without letting COVID-19 prevent us from doing so – that’s how strongly we believe in it.”

Younès Alaoui, Director, Al Amana FinlandWay®

Words from our franchisees

FinlandWay really revolutionised our preschool: learning became fun, but with a very clear foundation so that children can internalise the teachings properly. As a result, we not only see happy children but also teachers equipped and capable of accompanying the children on their path of play-based learning.

Monica Rosas, Head Teacher, Nido Kidsworld FinlandWay®

Words from our franchisees

FinlandWay really gets the kids involved in their learning, we had to extend the activities often because the kids were so excited – they did not want to leave at the end of the day! The programme was positively perceived by the parents, too. The systematic progress evaluation generates concreteness, and it’s a great differentiator. The system helps the teacher to be more involved with the children and the class.

Carlos, Owner, Colegio Itatiaia Morumbi FinlandWay® pilot unit

Words from our franchisees

When the training started, wow, that’s when we realised what really makes the difference.
