In Fífuborg, play is the primary teaching tool, and all school activities are built around it. The belief is that children learn best through play, so the environment is designed to encourage play and provide easy access to diverse materials both inside and outside. The main focus areas of the preschool include fostering friendship, promoting environmental education, developing literacy skills, and promoting democratic values.

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 Fífuborg is: Hrund Sigurhansdóttir
