Time to choose school
The municipality of Älmhult provides school placement from autumn the year children turn 6 years old. This means that preschool-class (förskoleklass) is compulsory for all children living in Sweden.
The curriculum for the preschool class is the same as the curriculum for the elementary school. This in order to facilitate a smooth integration between preschool class, elementary school and after school care.
Everybody is placed in public school
The municipality of Älmhult is divided into school districts. Students are placed in a school based on the school district they belong to, subject to availability.
Information for the autumn term 2019
Guardians of children turning six years old will receive a letter from the education department in middle of January. This letter explains how to change school if desired. Decision of definitive placement for your child is announced during week 11.
