The well-rounded development of each child at Joyful Education is of the utmost importance to us, so we strive for excellence in each area of their education. Everything at our preschool, from the curriculum to the environment is created with your child’s best interest at heart. Not only do we follow the Swedish academic approach we also include many other elements to enhance their creativity, compassion and learning. See below for more details!
Our professional and competent teachers make sure that all learning is in accordance to the Swedish Curriculum for the Preschool Lpfö (Revised 2010).
We teach your child in a playful way about each subject in the curriculum such as: science, literacy, arts, crafts and mathematics.
We thank God for our food each time we eat through rhymes, singing, to create an awareness of gratitude for the blessings of life.
Joyful Education is a centrally located in Stockholm. It’s just a two minute walk from Odenplan Metro station or it’s easy drop off your child by car outside.
Each classroom has access to a Swedish and an English speaking teacher. Our inspiring, holistic learning environments are where students actively practice both languages, in a diverse group setting.
Our weekly park and forest visits provide a good environment for development, play and learning. Spending time outdoors and in nature is very important for your child’s well being and fine/gross motor skills development.
We let your child experience different cultural activities such as museum visits, children theatres, musical events and more.
We are just one block away from the City Library of Stockholm which allows us biweekly visits, giving your child the opportunity to borrow books in different languages to enhance their literacy training.
We have our own well-equipped and wonderful playground that is accessible for your child to play in and enjoy. The playground is designed in cooperation between parents, architects and teachers.
Recycling / Environmental awareness
Environmental awareness has never been more important than today. E.g. the kids make their own toys with old electronics they bring from home, using their creativity and imagination.
We have our own woodwork room where your child, in a small group, can practice their creativity in a playful and safe way.
We document your child’s development from a holistic approach and invite you to participate in this ongoing progress. You will receive all documentation as a memory of the first years of your child’s life.
Your child’s thoughts and ideas are important to us. Every Friday after morning circle time your child chooses an activity presented by a teacher using flashcards.
Keeping family members around the world updated with the progress of your child is not easy. To support you we created a private instagram account where the children take turns in photographing their daily activities. Private identity is respected.
Singing and playing music is integrated throughout the day. Music develops your child’s brain in areas involved in language development, reasoning and thinking creatively. It also helps children to connect with God as we include Christian inspired songs about Jesus and the Bible.
Learning to take responsibility and showing compassion are very important life skills. We have therefore developed a buddy program that gives the older children the opportunity to teach the younger children simple tasks.
During each semester we will have a developmental talk about your child. We also include a language mapping of your child once a year.
Joyful Education supports ALEF, Adult Learning and Empowerment Fund, on a monthly basis. ALEF was created for adults who missed the chance of attending school as a child. Joyful Education is always looking for new opportunities how to impact positive change in our world.
