Children and education

The Municipality of Norrköping provides the services of around 90 municipal nursery schools, as well as baby cafés, registered child-minding homes and day nurseries. There are also 25 private nursery schools run as either parent cooperatives, associations or foundations. Nurseries welcome children between 0-5 years of age and registration is not compulsory.

In Norrköping we have about 60 municipal schools which provide the 10-year compulsory education programme as well as four upper secondary schools. We also have special schools which deliver specific training and support for children with physical and mental disabilities.

Norrköping also offers a number of independent compulsory education and upper secondary schools which are self-governing.

Komvux is the municipal adult education institution which provides education corresponding to the last three forms of primary school and all secondary schooling. In addition, there are special vocational training courses available as well as SFI, Swedish for Immigrants.
