Who Are We?
Futuraskolan Brahegatan is an international pre-school which follows the Swedish national curriculum. We have 45 children between the ages of 1 and 6 years. Departments are created based on the ages of the children and vary in size from 15 to 20 children per group. Each department is lead by a team of three teachers.
We focus on providing our children, with a voice, engaging activities and recognizing their day to day accomplishments. Most importantly, we want our children to have fun!
Where Are We?
Futuraskolan Brahegatan is located on Östermalm. The pre-school is newly renovated and we have our own playgrund outside the pre-school. We are close to the park Humlegården and just a couple of minutes walk from the big nature area Lill-Janskogen. It is just a doorstep away to museums and the marvelous Stock- holm city.
What Do We Offer and How Do We Work?
We work thematically to stimulate learning in the areas of language, mathematics and natural sciences. We utilize many forms of pedagogical documentation, but something that follows our children through the years is their personal portfolio.
Each department has their own age specific area which is designed to encourage and inspire the development of our children. We also have different learning areas to explore, like gym, library, make believe and natural science area.
English is our medium of communication, but we also provide the children with opportunities to develop their Swedish language through the use of literature, songs, events and every day interac- tion. We make use of our International language library as we believe it is important to nurture every child’s native language and culture. We have a unified approach to language development and still develop the cultural diversity of the school.
We work on raising our awareness on how to take care of the environment through projects, dialogues, stories, and role playing. Our children play an active part in the recycling learning process by going to the recycling stations. They also look at what possibilities they can find from recyclable materials by using them for building, arts and construction. At Brahegatan we have fish and plants that the children take care of.
Along with our daily activities, it is our ambition to be outside two hours daily.
Our partnership with the home is developed in many ways, one of which is through the use of our Parent Support Association. This is a forum for open dialog with our parents where we can exchange ideas, encourage parent involvement and allow parents opportunities to influence activities in the pre-school.
