At the unit Fjärilarna we have a place for a total 30 children who are on a daily basis divided into three to four groups.
Unit Fjärilarna is located on Askersundsgatan 6 in a bright premises on two floors.
We offer an environment that is safe and adapted to the needs of the children. All shelves, tables, and chairs at Fjärilarna are on the children’s height. We also think about our teachers who during their planning time have a possibility to use folding tables in adult size.
A day at Fjärilarna consists of a Montessori work session, an English class, circle times in Swedish or English and outdoor activities.
During the Montessori work session the children are working with Montessori material, paint, create, bake, read and listen to stories. The children may also perform various chores that they see mom and dad do at home, such as setting up and cleaning the table, sweeping, sharing fruit, cleaning, dusting, etc.
At Fjärilarna, we talk both Swedish and English.
We also put a great emphasis on movement as well. Each week our children go to gymnastics/ swimming and to the forest.
Other popular activities are drama, which we have every Friday and baking which occurs nearly every week.
We also take trips to inter alia museums, theaters and story time at a municipal library.
