If you choose the student kindergarten - you choose playing
We strive to create a good learning environment by emphasising safety and prosperity for all. Our main priority is “community, togetherness and equality”. Playing is at the centre of our everyday activities.
Steinkjer Student Kindergarten is located at Steinkjersannan, very close to Nord University. Central Steinkjer, with its parks, church, art exhibitions, libraries, etc is within walking distance. We also have great hiking destinations nearby, such as Furuskogen, Sneppahaugen and Figgafjæra.
We are owned and run by Studentinord, but share a building with Steinkjersannan kindergarten, a municipal kindergarten with six departments. We have a common outdoor area, a barbeque cabin and an activity room. We work closely with Steinkjersannan kindergarten on the programme for the five year olds, who will leave for school the following year.
Parents about the kindergarten
"I've met other parents in similar situations. Several of us are new in town and had no social network when we arrived. We have got funding from Studentinord and arranged barbeques, May 17 celebrations, "Karneval" etc. We get to use the kindergarten for social gatherings" (Karianne, student parent).
Steinkjer Student Kindergarten has five employees. Three of these are pre-school teachers and the other two are assistants. In case of special needs among the children special education staff may come in addition.
