We welcome parents to stay for 5 minutes to help their child settle into the new environment.


Will my child be fed whilst in Småland?

As every child has different dietary requirements and the sessions are for a short period of time we do not provide food, however we provide water at a child’s request.


If my child has additional needs can they attend your crèche?

Yes, we would be delighted to welcome your child. On their first visit we provide one to one care, then based on your advice and on their care plan we can assess if they’re happy to join a future session or we feel one to one support is needed in these sessions.
