You child is guaranteed a place at a preschool within four months of your application. You can apply for a place at a preschool in an area different from the one where you live, but if there are many applicants for a particular preschool, priority is given to those living nearby. There are also a number of independent preschools in the municipality. Contact the individual preschool you wish to apply for. If you child is in compulsory school, Luleå Municipality will offer them a place at a school as part of your resettlement. These places will primarily be in schools in your residential area. The freedom to choose a school means you have the possibility to request a specific school for your child.
Children in primary and lower secondary schools are entitled to free school transport to their chosen school if necessary, taking factors such as the distance between the home and the school into account.
If your child needs a place at an after-school centre, your application must be submitted no later than one month before the desired starting date. After-school centres are offered to children in preschool up to and including year 6.
