Short information about I Ur och Skur Hattstugan, in English:
We are a parent cooperative nursery in Skelleftehamn, in the north of Sweden.
”Joy, outdoor recreation, experiences, community, environmental work, motion, drama/ creation, play, learning and adventure.”
I Ur och Skur Hattstugan is situated in the middle of Skelleftehamn with a garden that invites natural play.
Our vision is that the child is at the center of our organisation, which follows the child’s requirements and interests.
With the curriculum Lpfö 98 as a base, we want to give children knowledge about nature and convey a feeling for Nature. We aim to cultivate environmental awareness and an eco-friendly approach in their daily lives.
We want to give children stimulation throughout their development by using nature and the natural environment. In Sweden we have something called ”Allemansrätten”,-the right of public access,” which means that we can roam freely in nature, as long as we follow given rules not to disturb or destroy.

The children are given the opportunity for movement, learning and belonging in a joyful way in Nature. We want to give the children the foundation for a lifelong interest in outdoor activities.
At I Ur och Skur Hattstugan playing has an important role and we strive to make very few interruptions in the children’s play. We work with different means of expression – creation, music, drama and movement. We strive to help the children experience and learn through all their senses.
Parental involvement in the organisation is very important. It ties the child’s two worlds together.
The teachers co-discovers, co-explores, co-experience and co-acts with the children.
Our garden is the heart of I Ur och Skur Hattstugan. The majority of our activities, we do outdoors. We also use a lot of our surrounding area such as the forest, sea and beach. Within walking distance we have an indoor swimming pool, sports hall, football field and a library.
