The Cottage / English Swedish preschool

The Cottage opens during the fall in the premises of the previous preshool Bondetorpet. The bilingual concept at the Cottage means that you meet Swedish-speaking and English-speaking teachers in all groups. We talk with the children in both languages. We use the före Bornholms modellen to help lay the foundation for reading and writing skills.

The days are filled with activities such as storytelling, dancing and singing in both Swedish and English. The teachers are experienced and are equipped with techniques that support dual-language learning. This is important as the children have a varied command of Swedish and English when they start in this group. Our experience shows that children in preschool embrace both languages, regardless of the language spoken in the home.

A healthy relationship to physical activity and your body needs to be developed at an early age. We focus on physical activities both indoors and outdoors. We have special PE programmes for children and we dance with the entire body to songs specially written for children. We practice balance acts and dance to develop children’s motor skills.

We begin every day outside. Whether we are in the nearby parks or on longer trips, we learn by doing, which means that children take things in with all their senses and the body. We learn how to keep the outdoor environment clean by picking rubbish and recycling and we learn how wild plants and animals function. Being out and about helps to make children aware of their surroundings as well as learning about The Swedish Right of Public Access.

Children have access to more languages than what we call verbal or spoken language. They can convey thoughts and emotions, such as by drawing, painting, singing or creating different types of modeling.

In a calm and relaxed environment, the children can work together in small groups and with a selection of materials. Having our own studio also gives us the opportunity to try many different techniques and materials.
