The values of Ösp are joy, friendship, and respect

Ösp Preschool is a culturally diverse preschool that prioritizes language development, social equality, and the overall well-being of everyone involved in the preschool's activities. The preschool's educational philosophy is rooted in social constructivism, which draws on philosophy, psychology, sociology, and pedagogy. It is influenced by several scholars, including John Dewey and Lev Vygotsky. At Ösp, well-being, equality, play, democracy, creativity, and language cultivation serve as guiding principles and are integrated into all aspects of the preschool's work.

Parent cooperation

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 Center for Ösp

Ösp Preschool falls under South Center. South Center provides a wide range of services to the residents of Breiðholt and is a comprehensive information source for municipal services. The Center provides welfare services, school services to preschool and primary schools, day care and recreational counseling, and various other services.

Child prosperity

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 persons for Aspar are: Helga Hrund Bjarnadottir and Anna Sigrún Guðmundsdóttir
