Working in preschools in Boden municipality

Working in preschools in Boden municipality

In Boden, we invest in our youngest citizens. Until 2025, we will spend SEK 250 million on building four new preschools. It is an investment that is unparalleled in our time in Norrbotten.

Our new preschools are built based on function, the children’s needs and the educators’ work environment. There are portals for different ages and places where the children can meet, furniture and windows at the children’s height and developing learning environments.

In the coming years, a new preschool is also planned in the Sanden area and in Trångfors. In addition, we are renovating and expanding three of our existing preschools.

At the same time, we are also investing in schools where, among other things, we are expanding Mårängskolan on Sävastön with a completely new school building and a better traffic solution.

The background is that we are becoming more and more residents in Boden and at the same time the groups of children in each class are to be reduced to 15 children. Two of the preschools are already ready, Björkdungen’s preschool in the center of the city and Lunda preschool in Sävast, which opened in February 2021.

New preschools

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.
