Stockholm International Preschool List: Nov 2012

Choosing the right preschool for your child is a huge consideration anywhere, but the choice can be even trickier when you’re not on home turf. International schools are often a great option for parents who plan on staying for only a short term or where one parent has a language that is not Swedish. They have the ability to accommodate a diverse community of children who will attend from up to a few months to a number of years.

We have compiled a  list of all Stockholm’s international preschools in alphabetical order. Almost all the schools listed teach in English or another European language, but most of them use the Swedish curriculum. To make it easier for readers, we have indicated what language each school uses.




If we have missed anything or if any information needs to be updated, please let us know.

    One of the biggest misleading claims that often causes confusion in education in Sweden is the term “international”. Sweden has a very specific curriculum which varies greatly from actual international education. At present only 2 schools that I know of offer international education and they are both private.

    • Morgan 8 Aug 2011

      Dave, thanks for that. 🙂

      We totally agree with you. We had such a hard time classify the many schools we researched. It’s true that almost all the schools we have on this list teach in English or another European language, but most of them use the Swedish curriculum. To make it easier for readers, we have indicated what language and what what style of curriculum each school uses.

      I wonder what other problems do foreigners encounter when trying to find a school for their kids? Any suggestions?

    • Tanja 27 Jan 2013

      Can I ask you to give the names of these two international schools? Thank you very much.

      • Farrah Gillani 27 Jan 2013

        I believe the two schools that Dave is referring to are Stockholm International School and British International Primary School of Stockholm.

  • nina aronsson 13 Oct 2011

    i am trying to find a good pre-school for my 3 year old boy, we have tried the state förskolan but we are very dissapointed with it as there is absolutely no structure and my son was quite frankly bored stiff during his time there. He has still to produce a painting of some sort, the same toys are expected to be played with all the time, no story time and no dressing up/role play. i live in Skaraborg and was wondering where i could find a montessori or a very good pre-school that will meet my sons needs.

    Hi,

    My friend is planning to move to Sweden, Her boys are in secondary and you are absolutely right, it is very difficult to assess what’s on offer for international students. Her oldest is in year 12, currently with Edexcel international board and the other boy is in year 8. Any information would be very helpful for them.

      Hi,

      I don’t know if you have found a job already. When my kid was attending Vittra Rosjotorp’s kindergarden they always seem to need native english speaker preschool teachers. I believe it’s worth a try to apply or just to contact for that matter. The principal’s name is Dominique but I don’t recall her last name. I’m sure it’ll be on their web site. http://www.vittra.se

      Good luck!

    Hi, we are planning to move to Stockholm this Summer and my daughter will be 2 then. What long are waitinglists for these schools ? We won’t have a lot of them as I would like her to start right away.

  • Veronika 24 Feb 2013

    I am applying for one year course in Stockholm and will get the acceptance letter in June – the school starts in mid-August. I am a single mom to a 4 yo daughter – how on earth am I gonna get a personal number for her so fast so she could start at pre-school in August? My only hope right now is international schools – maybe you guys don’t require that number?

    How do others do who move to work/study in Sweden and need to get their kids looked after? In Norway the give out fictive numbers for such cases but it is impossible to find any information in Swedish sites..

  • julia 28 Feb 2013

    hi, does anybody have experience with Futuraskola international pre- school in Kungsholmen? I’ll be happy to get your opinion

    • Maria 12 Jul 2013

      I would definitely not send my child to Elma School . This is International School as they state on their website,however it is mostly Arabic. The choice for the food for kids is either Halal or vegetarian.Be aware that not all the International schools are International ones.

      Go to the school to see what kind of kids are attending or what is the atmosphere before enrolling.Chceck also whether the teachers have qulifications. It happens that teachers have no pedagogical backround and they are teaching English your kids.

      • Tatiana 26 Feb 2014

        If there are a lot of children whose mother tongue is arabic so it doesn’t mean that this school is not international. As I know Elma School has a bilingual curriculum, i.e. they have two languages of instruction – English and Swedish and they have ” double” curriculum. It means that children study all the subjects in two languages simultaneously. As for the food- what is the problem with halal food? The only difference between the “ordinarie” and “halal” is that ” halal” excludes pork. Most important that food is nutritious for the children.
        And if you have any prejudices about some special group of the children who have a background from some special part of the world so then, probably, an international school is not something you have to look for your children.

        • emily 5 Aug 2014

    Hi there,

    thank you for a great post!

    I’m interested in sending my daughter to the Stockholm Internationalla Montessoriskola. Does anybody have personal feedback on this school?

    • Farrah Gillani 13 Aug 2013

      I have moved now, but my daughter attended the school and I have only praise for our experience there. The school’s main language of instruction is English, but they had one teacher in the group who spoke only English to the children and had ‘English Fridays’. They also teach Chinese and are dedicated to that. The building is beautiful, the teachers are fantastic, the Montessori approach is wonderful. it is a school, where your child will get a tailor-made program to achieve an education of the highest standard. Wish we were still there!

  • zelia 13 Aug 2013

    How long does it take to get a place in one of those preschools? We’re moving in a month or so and are desperately looking for childcare for our 2 years old.

    We won’t have our personnummers before me move in and we’re both planning to start work as soon as we arrive. We were told we couldn’t apply without a personnummer.

    Any suggestions?

  • Louise 7 Jan 2015

    I’m not one to post negatively online, but I feel somewhat compelled to warn families about Elma International school. As a former employee, I was shocked by how the school was run: a lot of the staff aren’t qualified, there is no sense of structure with the childrens day or education; and most importantly, there is an overall lack of management. There are also a lot of unethical isues that the staff are faced with: such as lack of payment etc. I’m actually shocked to see that this school is on this list and still open!

  • Priyanka 27 Jan 2015

    I live in Farsta and work in Hotoreget. I am looking for a International english speaking school for my 2 years old daughter. Can anyone help me suggesting good schools nearby to Farsta or Hotoreget?
    Thanks!

  • Noa 6 Jul 2015

    I also would like to warn parents about Elma School. Don’t be fooled by the “international” part of the name or the fact that it has some sort of Montessori teaching, as promoted on its website. They go by the Swedish curriculum, although from what I’ve seen, no teaching or learning is achieved anyway, due to the behavior of a lot of the students there.

    My children attended this school for a short period and were so unhappy. We are from USA and my children learned barely any Swedish. I followed them for half day and couldn’t get over the lack of discipline in the school and the behaviour of the so-called “principal” who yelled at both staff and students the day I was there. I pulled my children out and put them into a proper school where they are happy and thrive. There are plenty of schools out there that have both English and Swedish as their languages of instruction. Check on the Stockholm website and look at things such as survey results and percentage of students eligible for Gymnasium. These things say a lot about the school!

  • Puria 21 Feb 2017

    Hello,
    I am currently living in Quebec, Canada and planning to move to Stockholm. French per-school is what I am looking for my daughter of age 2. I see there are a couple of them referenced here but there is no hint on how long usually the waiting list tent to be and also the daily/weekly/monthly compensation.
    Thanks for any hints!

    • Hi! The waiting times tend to vary, it’s better if you send a mail to the school of your choice to get the accurate answer from them. About compensations, those are arranged by the government.
