Who Are We?
Futuraskolan Brunbärsvägen is an international pre-school which follows the Swedish national curriculum. We have 120 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 25 children per group. Each department is lead by a team of 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?
We are located in Ruddammen, Östermalm. Outside our school is a large playing field and playground area and we are only a short walk distance from the forest Lill-Jansskogen. By utilizing the city transportation we have a plethora of Stockholm’s museums, theatres and parks at our fingertips.
What Do We Offer and How Do We Work?
We work thematically to stimulate learning in the areas of language, mathematics and natural sciences.
Each department has an age specific learning environment which is designed to encourage and stimulate the development of the children. We also have common areas such as our gym, art room, dramatic play area, math and construction areas, natural science area and libraries where the children can interact with other groups of varying ages.
English is our medium of communication but we also provide the children with opportunities to develop their Swedish language and mother tongue through the use of literature, songs, events and everyday interaction.
Along with indoor daily activities, the children are provided outdoor play two hours daily.
Our partnership with the home is developed in many ways, one of which is through the Parent Support Association. This is a forum for open dialog with our parents where we can exchange ideas and encourage parent involvement.
