The summer setup of preschools and after-school centres

During four weeks in the middle of the summer; from July 10th to August 4th, Skellefteå’s preschools and after-school centres are organized differently.

If you plan to have your child there during these weeks, you need to submit a specific application for the summer no later than June 7th.

The reason is that most Swedes have vacation during summer, often for 4-5 consecutive weeks. Therefore, very few children attend preschool and after-school centres (”fritids”) this time of the year. As a result, the majority of all units are temporarily closed. If you need a place for your child during the period July 10th to August 4th, there are designated units open.

This also regards those who usually have their child at OB activities (preschool and after-school centres at inconvenient working hours).
