In Ægisborg, the primary goal of the preschool activities is to enjoy life and we seek to create a positive and fun learning community for children and adults. The work is based on four cornerstones, which are play, exercise, written language stimulation, and creative work. Play is the best form of learning in childhood and an important part of children's culture. Belonging to a large group and knowing oneself within the group is a large task and is important for us all. In Ægisborg, there are many opportunities to practice being an active participant in a vibrant society, among other things by laughing together, comforting, praising, playing, borrowing, considering others, discussing, and making decisions.
Here is the preschool calendar for Ægisborg. The preschool calendar lists the planning days as well as other important information for parents and guardians.

We are all in this together, and as the proverb goes it takes a village to raise a child. Reykjavík City preschools make targeted efforts to consult with and increase parent involvement in preschool activities. All Reykjavík City preschools have parent associations and parent councils.

The Act on the Integration of Services in the Interest of Children’s Prosperity has come into effect. The goal is to ensure children and guardians receive the right assistance, at the right time, from the right parties. Families and children in need of early support have guaranteed access to a contact person in the child's immediate environment, such as in preschool or primary school. The contact person offers information and guidance on services and ensures that children and guardians have unhindered access to these services. Children, youth, and guardians can contact the school contact person to request integrated services.
The contact person for Ægisborg is: Björk Bjarkadóttir
