Preschool for children aged 1-5

Qualified preschool teachers and child carers work in preschools for the youngest children. Pedagogic activities are governed by the Preschool Curriculum.

Trollhättan has about fifty municipal preschools spread throughout the municipality. Activities are held in appropriately adapted premises. Many s strive to offer a programme with a specific focus, and organise their pupil by age or into sibling groups.

Hours are adapted to parents’ needs to the greatest possible extent. Night time childcare is offered. The municipality’s preschools collaborate with comprehensive schools.

There are also independent preschools. You have to contact the preschool where you would like a place for your child.
