The preschool has two sections. In one we speak Swedish with the children and in the other English and Spanish. We have a 2-year old group, a 3-year old group and a 4-year old group in each section. All groups follow the Swedish curriculum.
In preschool we give the children a safe and secure base. We believe in the competent child and strive to get children to think for themselves.
As our children are or will become multi-lingual we work with languages as a common thread through all our activities.
Preschool lays the foundation for lifelong learning. We offer the children an educational activity in which; welfare, care, nurturing and learning together form a whole. We strive to work in such a way that the children are stimulated, challenged to learn and develop. In our daily activities we promote; free play, creativity and joyful learning. We work towards safeguarding the child’s own interest to learn and gain new experiences, knowledge and skills.
Play is an important part of a child’s development and learning and we use this consciously in our activtites. Children learn and process events through play. In play, children practice their social skills, learn to take turns, etc..
Circle time in the morning, song and story time, snack and lunch are fixed daily routines. During the day the children are also given time to develop their own plans, imagination and creativity both indoors and outdoors. We spend time outside every day regardless of weather!
During the school year we work with various themes. We have creative activities such as; drama, baking, arts and craft at each child's own level. The children have music twice a week with the school's music teacher. Gross motor activities such as sports and games are also prominent features.
The preschool starts at 9 am and ends at 3:30 pm Monday through Friday. The possibility exists to drop the children off early between 8:30 and 9 am and to pick up between 3.30 and 5 pm (additional charges).
The preschool is closed during summer holidays as well as other school holidays.
