Leisure and recreation, after-school centres

If you are a working or studying parent, your child can attend a leisure-time centre before or after school. Children can attend leisure-time centre up until the term in which they turn 13 years of age. You can also apply for a place at a leisure-time centre on this page.

Staff at leisure-time centres have undergone basic teacher training specialising in working at a leisure-time centre. Their task is to stimulate the development and learning of pupils, offer them meaningful leisure activities and promote all-round contact and socialising.

Leisure-time centres are located adjacent to primary schools. You can find all leisure-time centres on their respective primary school page.

Once the pupil has been allocated a place, an introduction to the leisure-time centre can be offered based on their individual needs and in consultation with staff at the centre. When transferring from preschool to school and leisure-time centre, the introductions will take place simultaneously. An introduction involves the parent/guardian and pupil getting to know staff and the new environment. The introduction to the leisure-time centre is not free of charge.

Please note that...

During the summer months, preschools, leisure-time centres and other educational activities merge their operations. This may mean that there are no regular staff or regular activities. Activities may take place in places other than the pupil’s normal placement. As a general rule, no introductions are conducted during this period. Contact the municipality’s Customer Services if you need a place during this period.

The pandemic is still ongoing and very much affecting the municipality’s summer planning, particularly for weeks 28–31 when we merge and coordinate certain activities, staff and premises.

As a parent/guardian, you have the opportunity to register your need for care during these weeks; however, if there are two parents/guardians and only one is working or studying, in such a situation the point of departure is that the other will take care of the child.

Places at summer activities may involve your child meeting unfamiliar teachers in unfamiliar surroundings.

Changes to the schedule

The amended schedule should be submitted at least 14 days (but no later than 8 days) prior to the date on which the schedule change takes effect. The purpose of submitting the schedule on time so that the leisure-time centre has time to process the new schedule and make any staffing changes that may be necessary to ensure that the pupil can be cared for in the optimal manner based on their needs and the composition and size of the pupil group, so that a good environment can be offered. It is also important for the pupil to feel secure that their times are correct.

The schedule is based on the family’s needs:

  • If the parent/guardian works or studies, the schedule shall be based on working/studying hours, including travel time.
  • If the parent/guardian is on parental leave or is a jobseeker, the schedule shall be based on the times decided by the local head teacher. In Skellefteå Municipality, this is three days a week from the end of the school day until 15:30. This applies to pupils in preschool class up to and including Year 3. This excludes school holidays. If the times at leisure-time centre fall on skills development days, the parent/guardian’s holiday, when the pupil is sick or on public holidays, the scheduled time cannot be carried over.
  • If the parent/guardian is a short-term substitute, the same rules apply as for permanent employees/students and the schedule is based on working hours including travel time.
  • If it is not possible to submit a schedule eight days in advance, the schedule should be written down afterwards and submitted on a paper form.
  • If the pupil’s parent/guardian is on sick leave, receiving sickness benefit or pregnancy benefit, the schedule will be based on their child’s previous scheduled attendance.
  • When the pupil is absent from the leisure-time centre for a full week, for example, during the summer holidays, Christmas and Easter or any other holidays, enter “parent/guardian off all week”. For individual days off (i.e. days when the pupil is not in attendance or public holidays) leave the parent/guardian field empty.

Sickness should be reported directly to the leisure-time centre.

Leave is registered directly via the schedule e-service or form. Pupils are not permitted to attend the leisure-time centre when their parent/guardian is on holiday or otherwise away from work/studies, for example, on days off, leave or when using flexi-time, etc.

Please note that the e-service is in Swedish.

If the pupil does not have a place at a leisure-time centre and needs supervision during the holidays, you should notify the district administrator as soon as possible but no later than 14 days before the holiday starts. A minimum fee of 14 days is payable for holiday supervision; i.e., if your child requires holiday supervision for three days, you will be charged for 14 days.

The programme shall take advantage of the pupils’ desire to learn. It should be based on the national goals and give due consideration to the needs, experiences and thoughts of pupils and be adapted to pupils’ differing circumstances. Among other things, centres are tasked with supporting pupils’ social and general development, broadening and deepening their knowledge and experience and offering meaningful leisure activities.

Pupils also receive practical training in democracy, responsibility and exerting influence. Play, movement and creativity are important elements. Leisure-time centres are also tasked with collaborating with preschools, preschool classes and schools in the best interests of pupils from a holistic perspective.

Shared fees

Fee exemption

Pupils deemed to be in need of special support, or pupil’s absent due to illness for 14 consecutive calendar days, can be granted an exemption from fees. Please contact Customer Services for further details. Decisions rest with the head teacher.
