Parental Cooperation in Preschools

Concerted efforts are made to strengthen parental consultation and participation in all activities in preschool. In every school there is a council of parents and parents association.
  • All preschools hold at least two meetings with parents every winter.

Parent councils are annually consulted on policies and the working program for preschool and the City´s budget is based on this work.

According to the law on preschool (2008) there should be a council of parents in every preschool. The school principle initiates an annual election to the council in September where at least three representatives from the parents group take seat for a year.

The council discusses and gives a feedback about the curriculum and other plans and activities in the school. Also, it monitors the implementation of the school´s curriculum and programs and keeps parents informed. The council has a say in all major changes in pre-school.
