The premises, where the preschool is located, go back a long time. In these premises, Alva Myrdal started and run a contemporary pre-school, “Storbarnkammaren”. Alva Myrdal was a pioneer in Swedish pre-school education and she was very much part of the reformed Swedish Pre-schools and Schools. She also received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1982.
The Rainbow, just like other pre-schools within Tellusbarn group, focuses on language, creativity and health, based on the national curriculum. These three areas form an entity around the children’s learning and development. We work systematically with children’s language development through the model “Före Bornholmsmodellen”, which is a concept that promotes learning to read and write later on in school.
The pre-school is bilingual and this concept means that you will meet both Swedish- and English-speaking teachers in every group. We talk to the children in both languages, even though our main language is Swedish. Regardless of which language is spoken in the home, our experiences is, that children at pre-school take in both languages. Information for parents is available in both Swedish and English.
