Daily schedule

The daily routine is flexible. We adapt after the needs of the children, and aim to give the children good days in the kindergarten.

The kindergarten opens at 7.30. If you do not meet staff in the cloakroom when you arrive, please be sure to bring your child to their morning group room. For children arriving between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m., we provide a place to eat breakfast from home.   

We go out at most mornings at 8.30 until 10:00 a.m. and ask that the children who arrive after 8:15 be dressed for outside weather conditions and wait in the cloakroom for the others to join them before going outside. If we are already outside when you arrive, please be certain to notify one of our staff members that your child has arrived so that each child is greeted 'good morning', properly logged in and receives a high-visibility reflective vest.

Your packed lunch from home is provided at approximately 10.30 to 11:30 each day.  The kindergarten provides a snack to children enrolled in the long day sessions.  The afternoon snack varies, including yogurt, knekebrød with topping and oatmeal with milk and cinnamon, and fruit

The children are shaping their own days in the kindergarten. All through the day ther children will have several opportunities to play and participate in various activities inside and out. 

The kindergarten closes 16.30. Please make sure your child is registered as picked up before you leave. If someone else than a parent is picking up, or if your child is leaving with someone else, we must be notified in advance.
