Most children in Husby have a foreign background. Some are newcomers. Others are part of families that have lived in Sweden a long time. It is of great importance to work with the Swedish language and we adapt our methods to that most children have another first language than Swedish. Our teachers are used to handling groups that have a very mixed command of Swedish. Some children are fluent while others hardly speak a word. By combining storytelling, visits to the theater with drama games, sign language and dialogue, we put words on everything we do and experience. We also use the method före Bornholms modellen to lay the foundation for developing reading and writing skills.
Play is important in the development of the speech and language communication. Through playing, the imagination, empathy, speech and ability to interact are stimulated. At Paletten each child learns how to process feelings and emotions.
