Important information for you who is applying for a childcare place.
Right now childcare is receiving a lot of applications. Karlshamn’s municipality can therefore not guarantee a place at a pre-school according to the proximity principle or the legal guardian’s request. Applicants are offered a place in another pre-school within the municipality.
The pre-school education
The pre-school education is conducted as a pre-school and as pedagogic childcare for children from 1-5 years old.
The pre-school is open all year and accepts children during the time the guardian is working, studying, looking for a job or of with parental leave. Different sized pre-schools exist in different parts of the municipality. The pre-school is managed based on the educational curriculum and builds on a cooperation between the home and the pre-school. 24 hour service is available for children with special needs until 13 years of age. Pedagogical childcare means that the daycare personnel, in their home, tend to children whose guardian is working, studying, looking for a job or of with parental leave. There are three daycare groups in the municipality. As a pedagogical leader and a manager for employees, the preschool manager has the overall responsibility.
