From ages 6 to 18, children attend compulsory school divided into three stages: Förskola (preschool), Grundskola (compulsory school), and Gymnasieskola (upper secondary school). Preschool is encouraged for ages 1 to 5, focusing on play-based learning and social development. Schools in Sweden are generally free of charge, and all students in Sweden are entitled to free or subsidised school meals, ensuring that every child has access to nutritious food during the school day. Choosing the right school is a significant decision, and we understand that one size does not fit all. That’s why we offer a diverse range of options. This variety empowers you to find the perfect fit for your educational needs, whether you’re staying for a shorter or longer period.
