Welcome To The KIVA School

Apart from home, the single most important place in a child’s life is school.

Their first school experience plays a vital role in their academic and social development going forward. The Kiva School came into being with the collective dream to build a space that not only provides a strong academic foundation, but also cultivates holistic growth – socially, emotionally, physically and more. We also hoped to create an environment in which the children feel so safe and comfortable that they love coming to school!

Veritas Learning Circle (VLC) and The AMI School joined hands to bring this dream into reality. In Finnish, Kiva means someone who is nice and kind to others which we felt was the perfect name, as it aligns with our philosophy inspired by the Finnish education system and highlights the qualities we wish to instill in our children and the experience we hope to provide for our kids.

Our Programs


We follow the innovative SNAP™ (stories, nature, art and play) curriculum which works hand-in-hand with our play-based, literacy-rich environment and allows children to thrive and develop according to age appropriate milestones that have been set out in accordance with EYFS learning outcomes. Having an emergent curriculum ensures that pedagogical practices always remain child-centric, allowing educators to collaborate with, and not dictate to, children on their learning processes.

SNAP™ Curriculum


The love of books is one of the first things we hope to instill in young children. The joy, the wonder, the magic that they can find between the pages of a book is an experience we want them to have again and again.

Story-telling is a great teaching tool as well, and we use stories to not only enforce concepts like colours, shapes, and numbers but also to make things like “big” feelings more relatable for the little ones.


It is innately built in us as humans to connect to nature and find peace. Building that bond with our natural world, relating classroom concepts to the great outdoors, and also creating the awareness that taking care of our environment is an important responsibility is something that we believe strongly in at The Kiva School.


At The Kiva School, art isn’t just about painting or drawing. It is much more than that. It is an immersive experience, a channel to express emotions and dreams, a way to bond and connect, and a creative outlet that opens up a world of imagination and colour.


Play is the way in which children interact and engage with the world around them, starting from a very early age. It plays a huge role in the holistic development of a child – from stimulating creativity and imagination to physical development to enhancing social skills.

The most amazing part is, all this learning is happening without the kids even realizing it! They are just having fun!
