Schools and childcare

If you are planning on moving to Holbæk with your family, the municipality offers a number of schools and daycare facilities.

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.

Contact the school district

For admission of your child to a school, please contact your district school.

To apply for your child to enter pre-school childcare or an after-school facility you must apply online via Digital Pladsanvisning at this website (note that the instructions are in Danish only).
