In Boden, we invest in our youngest citizens. Until 2025, we will spend SEK 250 million on building four new preschools. It is an unprecedented investment in our time in Norrbotten. In Boden, there are also plenty of free options that also allow for preschools closer to home.
Boden is a city characterized by a strong sense of community and a desire to create a better future for all residents. Preschools in Boden are no exception, and there is a special sense of commitment and care for the well-being and development of children.
Preschools in Boden have the unique advantage of being located in a city that cares about the environment and sustainability. By using organic and sustainable materials in their activities, preschools can demonstrate their responsibility for the future of children and the health of the planet. This adds an extra dimension to the activity, where children also learn about the importance of taking care of nature and respecting its boundaries.
Educators at Boden’s preschools are committed to their work. They see each child as an individual with unique needs and conditions, and create a safe and stimulating environment where each child can develop their full potential. By using modern teaching methods and tools, educators can give children a broad knowledge base and boost their confidence and self-esteem.
Parents in Boden are also an important part of the preschool’s work. Close cooperation between parents and educators can create a strong community that supports children in their development. This also creates an opportunity for parents to be involved in their child’s education, and to gain a deeper understanding of their needs and challenges.
Preschools in Boden are an important part of the city’s future. By providing children with a safe and stimulating environment, and by teaching them about the importance of sustainability and community, Boden’s preschools can create a better future for all residents of the city.
In total, the education administration is now investing around SEK 250 million in building four new preschools, which is the largest targeted investment in qualitative development for children and young people in Boden municipality. Björkdungen was completed in 2019. Lunda preschool was completed in 2021.
The municipality of Boden offers guardians who work evenings and weekends care for children during times when the preschool and after-school center are not open. The activity is aimed at families whose children are enrolled in preschool or leisure time, children 1-12 years.
The staff who work with us are trained and have experience of children and care. The activities are based on the children and the weekends are planned according to the children’s needs and wishes as well as conditions. Outdoor activities, excursions, games and help with homework are examples of activities. All the day’s meals are served and the food is prepared by chefs at the preschool.
Today, OB care’s activities are at Kyrkkläppen’s preschool. From March 2022, Kyrkkäppen’s preschool will be completely renovated. As a result, OB care is moving its operations permanently to Björkdungen’s preschool. Björkdungen’s preschool is also a newly renovated preschool.
When assessing the need for space, the municipality of Boden is always based on the child’s best interests, and the assessment is always based on the child staying with a guardian when the other is at work.
