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 the current academic year 2019/2020, the age groups for admission are as follows:
Nursery Class - Children born in 2016.
Pre School 1 - Children born in 2015
Pre School 2 - Children born in 2014
For applications for August 2020, the application deadline is 1st March 2020. This is our main admissions intake. FIP also admit children all year round as and when vacancies arise.
The age groups for August 2020 admission are: Nursery Class - 2017, Pre School 1 - 2016 and Pre School 2 - 2015.
N:B Children entering Nursery Class at the start of the school year in August, need to turn 3 years of age between August and December the year they start.
Please note: If you accept an offer from another 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 prioritise families who choose FIP as their no. 1 choice.
In additional to the Oslo Kommune application all applicants MUST also apply directly to FIP.
Please complete our application form at your earliest convenience (the form can be found in the attachments on the right), and return it to us via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no cost in connection with the application process.
