ABOUT JACOB'S KINDERGARTEN

JACOB'S KINDERGARTEN


Our goal is to offer attractive and high quality daycare. The children learn English through early language immersion techniques – no previous knowledge of English is therefore needed. We offer daycare in a safe and stimulating environment by a competent and professional staff. Jacob’s Kindergarten was founded in 1996 and is operated by a non-profit parent-run association. The board, which gets elected every year at the Annual Meeting, consists of parents who have or have had their children at Kindergarten. This means that every parent has an excellent opportunity to take part in and influence the running of the Kindergarten.

We apply early language immersion techniques, where the staff uses mainly English, and the child’s mother tounge is understood. We use expressions, gestures and visual aids in addition to speaking. Children do not need to know English in order to start at Jacob’s Kindergaten. The children learn English through activities like games, stories, songs and poems.
