About the preschool

The preschool is open from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm 

Klettaborg Preschool is in Hamrahverfi in Grafarvogur, next to the district's primary school. When the preschool opened on June 1, 1990, there were three divisions, but in February 2004 a fourth division was added. Fálkaklettur and Arnarklettur are for the older children and Hrafnaklettur and Kríuklettur are for the younger children. Around 71 children between the ages of one and six attend the preschool at any given time.

The Preschool Director is Júlíana S. Hilmisdóttir

The values of Klettaborg are joy, respect, and safety


At Klettaborg preschool, we prioritize creating a positive and creative language environment where joy, respect, and safety are at the forefront in children's communication and surroundings. Our vision is that children will actively seek knowledge and be eager to take on the challenges of everyday life. To achieve this vision, we primarily use John Dewey's theories in our philosophy of education, which emphasizes that children are independent, thinking individuals who construct their own experiences to develop and learn.

Parent partnerships

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.
