The Kindergarten has places for 22 nursery children and 75 kindergarten children. This average standard means that at times there may be fewer children. The children are divided into three kindergarten groups and one nursery group.
Lærkereden (The Lark’s Nest) is for nursery children from six months to 3 years, Musvitstuen (The Mosvit Room) and Svalestuen (The Swallows’ Room) are for children aged 3-4 and Ørneborgen (The Eagle’s Castle) is for our 5-6 year-olds. Children from Musvitstuen, Svalestuen and Ørneborgen work in their rooms from 7.30 to 12.00 and then we all gather on the large playground from 12.00 – 13.30. In the afternoons we all get together again, and there’s an opportunity to play in all the rooms. The Lark’s Nest has its own rhythm.
Our work and the context we enter into takes the current group of children as the starting point. Therefore, we reserve the right to make changes because we are dealing with children.
In the kindergarten, we have one departmental head, one deputy head, eight teachers, four teaching assistants, four helpers, one woman in the kitchen and two cleaners. In addition, we also have a caretaker on the staff. We have, at times, employed other helpers in fixed-term positions during periods when, for example, there are many children in the building.
