The preparatory class at the Swedish Community School enroll children from the year they turn 6 until they start compulsory schooling the year they turn 7.

The preparatory year is designed to stimulate each child’s development and learning, and provide a platform for their future schooling. The preparatory class functions as a transitional arrangement between the kindergarten and the compulsory school. The aim of the preparatory class is that it should stimulate the development of learning of each student, and prepare students for future education as well as promote their harmonious development. Play and creativity are essential components. The education should be based on an overall view of the students and their needs.
