Who Are We?
Futuraskolan Täby is an international pre-school which follows the Swedish national curriculum. We have 100 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?
We are located in the Näsby Park portion of Täby. The pre-school is newly renovated and we have our own playground outside the pre-school. Our location provides the children with a variety of places to develop both gross and fine motor skills as well as a curiosity for nature.
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 common areas such as our gym, art and water play rooms, where the children can interact with children of varying ages as well as develop their motor skills.
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 interaction. We are developing our Native 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.
Along with our daily thematic 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 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.
