How to get a preschool place for your child

You must apply to the municipality (kommun) if you want a place for your child in pre-school.

The municipality is mandated to offer your child a place within four months at a pre-school that is near your home as much as possible.

If parents do not accept a place they have been offered, they will have to wait in a queue. They will also be required to make a new application.

If you do not get the place you want, but accept the place offered to you, you will remain in the queue to transfer to your first choice as soon as a place is available.
