®  Estonia's Innovative Early Education: Nurturing Young Minds

Estonia's early education system is a standout example in nurturing young children's development. Kindergartens go beyond mere childcare, playing a pivotal role in setting the stage for educational success. They strike a unique balance by allowing children to engage in play while guided by skilled teachers who create integrated learning experiences.

This approach seamlessly blends subjects, intertwining math with the environment, language with art, and speech with various disciplines. Kindergarten teachers, equipped with at least a bachelor's degree, enjoy autonomy to tailor learning environments, track individual child development, and adjust activities based on children's interests and moods.

Estonia's preschool education emphasizes fostering creativity, freedom, and a profound appreciation for the world. It prioritizes holistic child development through a harmonious mix of play, learning, and technological innovation.

ProgeTiger: Advancing Tech Literacy in Estonian Preschools

In 2012, Estonia launched the ProgeTiger program, targeting technological literacy from preschool to high school levels. For preschoolers, it introduces skills in robotics, programming, and STEAM subjects, promoting problem-solving and critical thinking.

The initiative provides educators with training and tools to integrate technology into early education. Teachers use platforms like Qobo, mTiny, Blue-Bot, Matata Lab, LEGO WeDo Set, and tablets with coding apps for interactive learning.

ProgeTiger aims to prepare kids by fostering curiosity and tech skills. It introduces engaging activities to shape a generation that actively contributes to a tech-driven world. Estonian preschoolers explore technology through playful activities.

Dilesy (Jutupliiats) – Interactive Learning with Smart Technology

Dilesy merges digital technology with traditional learning materials using the Smart Learning Pen. This interactive tool brings educational books and games to life, engaging preschoolers by speaking, asking questions, and offering tasks or music.

It offers evidence-based and personalized learning games designed to help children understand healthy lifestyles, cope with stress, and regulate their emotions.

These companies symbolize Estonia's commitment to leveraging technology in education while fostering collaboration between public and private entities to revolutionize early childhood learning.

We would also like to inform you that on March 12-14th, 2024, the mentioned and more companies will visit Azerbaijan again within the framework of the program. In which they will participate in face-to-face B2B meetings, LEF B2B Forum, as well as business tours conducted by Caspian Energy Club.
