Focus Area

Our vision is : Good relationships nurtures learning

We are concerned about what good quality in the kindergarten is, and will ensure that all children in Alta receive an equal and high-quality kindergarten offer. For the kindergarten year 2020-2021, our focus area is "Nature as a play and learning arena." Nature is an inexhaustible source of learning. Both about own skills, socially and motorically, but also about bird life, plant and animal life. The children learn to cook outside, they learn to travel in nature and learn about environmental protection.

We base our pedagogy on the idea that play should be central in a kindergarten's everyday life and it is important for us to make the role and significance of play visible. We are interested in the play environment and let ourselves be inspired by Reggio Emilia and the room as the 3rd educator.

We are a practice kindergarten for UiT Norwegian Arctic University. This means that we regularly have kindergarten teacher students in practice with us.

Nyland Student Kindergarten focuses on Finnmark culture and carries out various cultural activities throughout the year. The activities are adapted to the children's age and level of development.

We spend time outside in all kinds of weather. We are an internship kindergarten for UiT. This means that we regularly have kindergarten teacher students interning with us.

Outdoor Life

The out door life is very important at all bases, and we have a large outdoor area that is used frequently. Just behind the kindergarten we have a separate fenced forest, with nature playground, zipline, waterway and, lavvo, in addition to a large outdoor area in front of the kindergarten. In the fall, you can even pick blueberries inside our fences. We often start the day out at the big base, and fire up the barbecue room if it is cold. When we do not use the forest and the outdoor area in the kindergarten, we have many nice hiking destinations in the local area.
