Who we are
Futuraskolan International pre-school Gåshaga is a bilingual pre-school with children and staff from all over the world. We have an international perspective preparing the children to be citizens of the world and our pedagogical activities are performed in Swedish and English.
English is our common language, but we are able to support the children in other languages.
The pre-school is located close to our school at Gåshaga. We follow the cities rules for opening times and right to care. Opening hours are adapted to the needs of the current child group within the time frame from 06:30 to 18:30.
The preschool is located in spacious and nice premises in a quiet residential area in Gåshaga. We have a large playground with a proximity to forests and natural areas. The Pre-school is easily reached by Lidingöbanan or by bus.
What we offer and how we work
Our learning environment encourages joyful learning and free play in interaction with each other which inspires children to make active and independent choices. We work a lot on how to communicate. Managing their language in relation to other children and adults creates joy and confidence about their own self, which in turn gives a good sense of self-esteem. We also work actively to raise interest for the English language.
Our goal is to give the children an understanding of the environment and sustainable development. We are working to give children healthy habits and are Green Flag Certified.
Our outdoor environment allows for many different activities where the children naturally train their rough motor skills. It also offers exciting experiences through different games and provides a meaningful outing for children’s learning and development.
The proximity to the forest is a great asset we visit during all seasons. Here the children, big and small, are given the opportunity to explore and learn about life in the forest and how we take care for it through play and joy.
We follow the Swedish Curriculum and we also work with the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) IEYC is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for every subject, for international mindedness and for personal learning.
We work thematically to stimulate learning in the areas of Social skills, Language, Mathematics , Motorics, Arts and Natural sciences. We utilize many forms of pedagogical documentation, but something that follows our children through the years is their personal portfolio. All classrooms has their own IPAD and IKT is part of our daily program.
