The motto of Stakkaborg is joy, physical activity, and friendship

The preschool's philosophy is based on the ideas of John Dewey, who believed that children learn best through their own experiences and that they should be active and creative in their play. At Stakkaborg, the children have daily outdoor activities and organized exercise. The younger children do these activities inside the preschool, while the older children have sports class at the Háteigsskóli gymnasium.

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 Stakkaborg

West Center provides a wide range of services to the residents of Vesturbær, Miðborg, and Hlíðar and is a comprehensive information source for municipal 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 prosperity contact in the child's immediate environment, such as in preschool or primary school. The prosperity contact offers information and guidance on services and ensures that children and guardians have unhindered access to these services.

Children, youth, and guardians can reach the school prosperity contact to request integrated services.
