Kindergarten Admission Process

At Skagerak International School we prepare you for studies or work anywhere in the world. We help you set your ambitions – and reach them.

We now accept applications, so what are you waiting for?

Norwegian law guarantees all children a kindergarten place, though not necessarily to the kindergarten of the parent’s choice, if they are over one years of age by August and their application is submitted before 1 March. Places are generally offered starting from 1 March, completing in April with late recruitment in May/June. Any openings during the academic year will be filled in accordance to any waiting list and admission policy.

All private kindergartens in Sandefjord kommune are required to coordinate admission with the Sandefjord kommune kindergarten authorities. Please read about private and public kindergartens in general in Sandefjord kommune.

Skagerak Kindergarten strives to coordinate kindergarten recruitment together with school recruitment, in particular where siblings are involved.

Parents will be contacted when an opening becomes available but we also encourage applicants to contact us should they have any questions in the meantime. Please contact our admissions officer Ms Cindy Hvidsten directly at for further details.
