Can my children attend kindergarten when I am staying at a reception centre?

If your child is four or five years old, he or she can be placed in a kindergarten. The reception centre can help you to apply.

If your child is two or three years old, he or she may be given a placement in a kindergarten from August in the year the child reaches two years of age, if the municipality offers free core hours (gratis kjernetid). 

Children less than two years old may also be given a placement in a kindergarten if there are special considerations such as, for example, health or social concerns. Speak to the reception centre staff if this is the case. 

You may also enquire with the staff at the reception centre if you have general questions about kindergartens and placement in kindergartens.
