Focus areas

Children create relations with one another and learn the best through play and action. The kindergarten's employees are for this reason present, participating and competent.

It is important that we are predictable and clear in our contact with children. We must be supportive in their development so that they can learn play skills, which can last the rest of their lives. The student kindergartens will use the cultural diversity and the good language environment when playing.

The importance of nature is emphasized at all bases, and we have a large outdoor area that is used frequently. When we do not use the surrounding forest areas, the children can frolic on the playground equipment, natural terrain and paved trails for cycling within the kindergarten ground. In the outdoor area of ​​the kindergarten we also have a barbecue hut and a large beautiful lavvu with an oven and entrance area.

A day in kindergarten

Blåmann and Tinden (3 - 6 years) start outside 4 days a week. On cold days we fire up the lavvo and eat breakfast there. The kindergarten has the forest and hiking trail easily accessible and use these areas actively during summer and winter. The goal is for the children to have a positive relationship with nature and the outdoors.
