Important: All applicants MUST apply directly to FIP and to www.oslo.kommune.no in order for FIP to consider your child/children for admission.
We always recommend that families apply to additional kindergartens if your family is reliant on child care as places at FIP are limited.
FIP has a maximum of 48 students divided into 3 classes according to age. Nursery has a maximum of 14 students, Pre School 1 and Pre School 2 have 17 students each. Each class has 1 qualified teacher and a 1 teaching assistant.
For applications for August 2021, the application deadline is 1st March 2021. This is our main admissions intake period. However, FIP also admits children all year round as and when vacancies arise.
The age groups for August 2021 admission are:
Nursery Class - children born in 2018
Pre School 1 - Children born in 2017
Pre School 2 - Children born in 2016.
N:B Children entering Nursery Class at the start of the school year in August 2021, must turn 3 years of age between August and December 2021.
Please note: If and when you accept an offer from a kindergarten, Oslo Kommune will delete your application to all your other choices. If you wish to stay on FIP's waiting list after accepting an offer in a different kindergarten, you MUST RE-APPLY to Oslo Kommune in order to be visible on the Oslo Kommune's FIP waiting list.
FIP initially considers families who choose FIP as their no.1 choice. Please refer to the FIP Charter for admissions priorities.
