Kindergarten in Nacka (Saltsjö-Boo)

Looking for a kindergarten for my 3 year old

We're thinking of renting a house in Saltsjö-Boo, but before we commit ourselves we'd like to check the kindergarten options for our 3 year old daughter.

Initially we had thought to send her to an English only one (she is English/Hungarian) but it seems the options out Nacka way are much more limited than in the city. Now I'm looking at the Vittra kindergarten in Saltsjö-Boo which is bilingual (and close to the house).

Does anyone know of any other bilingual kindergartens in the Nacka area? Or indeed know anything about the Vittra one?

Of course, we could send her to a Swedish only one, but that's an issue for a separate thread.

Any advice or information would be most welcome.

Just so you know...the Vittra in Orminge is NOT bilingual as they may advertise. I also thought they were but they are most definitely not. I am a present parent there and would not give it any positive marks. I love it in Nacka but you will have a difficult time finding any other school other than Vittra that have any spots. Vittra caters to the newcomers to Nacka who have not been waiting in years in a cue. Most parents start at Vittra but just as a waiting point until something else comes along. The kommunal schools are way better and actually have some artwork for the kids. Vittra likes to watch videos and play on the iPad. Good luck and I can offer you Mose advice if you need.

Well that might explain why there is no queue at Vittra. I thought that once your child is registered the commune has to provide a place for them within 3-4 months. Is this not the case? (I understand that you might not get your first preference).

Yes. You should get a spot in nacka within a few months...however...we got a spot in a remote Sickla location and after seeing the school I could not send my daughter there. If you have the time...there are some nice parent co-op daycares nearby.
