18.1 Daycare/nursery (12 months–5 years)

Before preschool class and compulsory school, children may attend preschool (förskola).

Preschool (including daycare and nursery services, leisure-time centres and equivalent forms of education) are provided at cost price. The cost of a full-time place for a child in preschool is estimated at approximately SEK 13 000 per month. However, via their statutory rights, EU/EEA citizens need only pay a reduced fee. After the parents apply for placement at a preschool in the municipality where they live, the child is offered a vacancy based on that municipality's queue and admission rules.

Please note that Stockholm is divided into several different municipalities. Children who reside in one municipality but wish to attend preschool in another may face some administrative obstacles. It is advisable to contact the education office in the municipality to resolve any issues that may arise.

For more information about queues and admission to preschool, please contact the municipality where you live:
