To talk about Sweden and not to mention the Swedish kindergarten, is not possible. It is very important thing in every family's Life.
The Swedish school system offers comprehensive education for children from age 6 up to university, entirely free of charge. If your children are under the age of 6, extensive preschool/day care services are available at a heavily subsidised cost.
School and preschool are the responsibility of each municipality.
Today, some 80 per cent of one- to five-year-olds attend preschool in Sweden, if only for a few hours a day. This is high by international standards, and one explanation lies in Sweden’s large share of dual-earner families. Fees are based on your household income as well as the number of children you currently have enrolled. The maximum monthly cost for your first child is SEK 1,260; a successively lower cost then applies per additional child. Every child is guaranteed a place in a preschool after turning 1, subject to certain regulations.
Children's groups in kindergarten is not large. Those small one, between 1 - 3 years, those max of 15 in the group and has three teachers. Older children, they are 18 and also has three
teachers in the group ..
There are plenty of outdoor play in kindergarten, and this phrase: There is no bad weather, there are only bad clothes, was founded right here. In kindergarten.
