Transfers between municipalities

Municipalities in the Reykjavík area have a mutual agreement to authorize children moving between municipalities, staying in the relevant nursery school until the child receives a nursery school place in the legal domicile municipality. However, no longer than 12 months. If there is a transfer between municipalities, the parent/legal guardian must send in an application for a nursery school.

If the service that the child requires, e.g. due to disability, is not available in the municipality the child is moving to, the stay in those cases will as per an agreement. The parents of a child should apply in writing for an extension of a nursery-school stay in the municipality they are moving from, but the municipality of the new domicile will pay the cost of the municipality. The municipality of the new domicile will collect nursery-school fees from the parents in accordance with the admittance and discount regulations that apply there.
