Our Vision

A world where every child has an opportunity to grow to their full potential with the support of competent and encouraging educators.

Our Story

In 2015, Taina Mikkola, the founder of the TinyApp, saw the challenges faced by early childhood education professionals at their daily work. After more thorough discussions with the professionals, she came up with the idea of TinyApp. TinyApp supports early childhood education professionals in their super-important work on children’s learning and well-being. TinyApp is created to support child-initiated early childhood education, where the child’s strengths and interests are at the center.

We are continually working with kindergartens around the world. We offer education professionals tools for developing their skills, planning and evaluating activities, and cooperating with parents. Technology is a tool for us to make the best practice available to all. Whatever the starting point, the methods supported by the TinyApp provide a framework for quality child-initiated pedagogy.

Our team and network consist of experienced education and information experts. We believe that every child should get the best possible start on their individual learning path. We believe that with TinyApp, we can make this possible for children in Finland and around the world.
