Schools and childcare
The municipality of Holbæk is divided into eight public school districts. Your child will normally attend school in the district you live in. However, non-Danish speaking children may follow a special beginner´s programme at Isefjordskolen. A child starts school at the age of six, and there are 10 compulsory school years. School uniforms are not used. Each school has an after-school facility (SFO).
All public schools are free of charge but you pay a monthly fee for preschool childcare (dagtilbud) as well as for after-school facilities (SFO). In each school district, a number of child care facilities for preschool children are available. For children aged 1-3 you may choose between a childcare institution (vuggestue) or daycare in a private home (dagpleje). For children aged 3-6, childcare institutions (børnehus) are available.
