Schools and education

We want to give every child a good start in life. Therefore, we have created a calm and stimulating learning environment where the students get acknowledgement and encouragement. It is of great importance that the students achieve the national learning targets.

In Skurup, there are both municipal and independent preschools. You can freely choose which preschool you want your child to attend. We do everything we can to ensure that you get the preschool that you have applied for.

We offer preschool for all children aged 1–5 years to the extent required by parents' employment, studies or the child's own needs according to the Education Act. For children whose parents are on parental leave, preschool is offered for 15 hours per week during school terms.

Public preschool for children aged 3–5 years

For all three-, four- and five-year-olds, there is public preschool. This means that all children are offered 525 hours per year free of charge in preschool from the autumn term of the year they turn three. Public preschool is voluntary.


The aim of the education is that the students acquire good knowledge, skills and self-confidence, making them willing and able to participate in and develop a democratic society.

From the age of six, your child is welcome to attend one of our elementary schools. As a parent, you have the opportunity to choose which school you want your child to attend.

There are seven municipal elementary and junior high schools in the Municipality of Skurup. There is also a senior high school, Nils Holgerssongymnasiet.

You and your child are always welcome to pay a visit!
