Student day care in Bø
The student day care centres shall provide a safe environment and a well established educational service for the children.
In addition we focus on giving the best adapted service according to the different student's needs.
Examples of such adaptation :
- social net work building for the parents
- extended opening hours when related to study programme
- looking after sick children on exam day
- letting of the day care centre premises for children's birthday parties etc.
- to be a support for the children and the parents in a hectic everyday life as student families
Veslekroa day care centre includes two different departments. Tyrihans includes 18 children from the ages 3 to 5. Veslefrikk includes 9 children from the ages 0-3. Each department has a teacher and two assistants working on a daily basis. We have a highly qualified and reliable staff showing great flexibility towards children and parents. The staff have long experience in providing the students and their children with a well functioning day care centre.
Opening hours are Mon-Fri 0730-1630.
The student day care centre is located next to Kroa, app. 1,5 km from Campus. In short distance to a beautiful forest area, the 'Hundred Acre Wood'.
We emphasize the importance of the staff acknowledging each child. Currently we have two areas of priority;' working with relationships' and' diversity in the day care centre'.
The educational work is closely described in the day care centre's yearly plan.
The student day care centre is reserved for students but in cases of vacancy we do fill up with other applicants.
In August 2013 we will move into a new building at the University College.
We will operate a two-departmental nursery, wall to wall with a two - departmental municipal day care institution.
In these premises, we will further develop our work with the welfare of the student and parents work together with the municipal nursery for the academic content for kids.
Opening hours from August 2013 are Mon-Fri 0715-1645.
We will cooperate with the University College and make us benefit from the opportunities in the local environment. http://www.hit.no/nor/HiT/Studiestedene/Studiested-Boe/Ny-kro-og-barnehage
