Ukrainian-Finnish Schools Slated for Fall 2024 Opening

Lumo Education and M7 collaboration bring innovative, new Ukrainian-Finnish Schools to Ukraine.

SAVONLINNA, FINLAND (May 4, 2023) – The first kindergarten of two schools and 12 kindergartens is scheduled to open in Lviv, Ukraine, in the fall of 2024.

The Ukrainian-Finnish Schools are made possible through the collaboration of Lumo Education and M7 Estate.

The first Ukrainian-Finnish school will be located in a residential complex, Parkside. It is a modern European town built on the Lviv Ring Road, 10 km from the center of Lviv. It includes 87 hectares of land, 40 residential buildings, and a unique infrastructure, including two schools, 12 kindergartens, five stadiums, and two hospitals. Lumo Education will operate and manage all kindergartens and schools.

“Our story began with a conversation with the founder of M7 Estate, Serhiy Naprasnykov, who proposed that we create a modern education concept for the residents of the Park Side complex, in which children would learn skills for adaptation in the modern world, develop their talents and thus be primarily happy. That is why we turned to our Finnish colleagues for help”, says Denis Denisenko, Founder of the Ukrainian-Finnish School.

The school concept is based on Ukrainian culture, Finnish educational expertise and it is the school of the new era. The Ukrainian language and culture are at the heart of the curriculum. The curriculum is implemented by dedicated teachers trained in Finnish pedagogy. Ukrainian-Finnish Schools provide safe and inspiring facilities close to each child’s home. They will be the pathfinders and lead the transformation of education in Ukraine. By supporting students' active participation and agency in their learning from an early age, the UFS students will grow to be Ukraine's future leaders and change-makers. We set a new standard for education in Ukraine in close collaboration with the families.

"Lumo Education takes great pride in being a part of the Ukrainian-Finnish schools initiative. We strive to provide the best education for the students in Ukraine.", concludes Aki Halko, CEO of Lumo Education.
