Starting preschool


Preschool enrolment

Preschool is the first school stage and the start of children's schooling. Enrolment rules are in place for preschools in Hafnarfjörður that aim towards children getting preschool placement from 15 months old (depends on the month of birth).

All parents/guardians, independent of residency are entitled to apply for preschool stay in Hafnarfjörður's preschools through My Pages, but children must have legal domicile in Hafnarfjörður when the preschool stay starts.

Hafnarfjörður reserves the right to enroll children in preschool by age. The main allocation of preschool stays is performed during spring each year for preschool places that become available when the oldest age group starts primary school. Enrolment is also performed in February, by availability. Other allocations are also evenly performed during throughout the school year, as preschool places become available due to moving or other reasons.
