Pre-school and childcare
In Sweden, and of course in Lund, you can choose between different alternatives for your child when it comes to nursery schools, pre-schools,and child care.
Lund’s nursery schools are based on a pedagogic group organisation for children between the age ofone and five, sometimes six years.
Open nursery school –
An open nursery school is open for children that do not attend any other pre-school.
Regular pre-school –
All children are offered a free place at a pre-school, starting during the autumn semester of the year they turn three years old. This day care facility is open for them three hours a day.
Public pedagogic care–"Kommunal pedagogisk omsorg"
This is a different type of day care offered by the municipality. Public pedagogic care is offered by family day care centres, or family leisure centres.
A place in the public nursery and pre-schools
According to the school law every child between the age of 1 and five (six) has to be offered a place in the public nursery and preschools without delay. The City of Lund offers a place within three months before the desired starting date.
