How to apply for a spot

All you need to know about the application process

Sammen has eight kindergartens in the Bergen area; BlokksbergBortigardFagertunFantoftFantoft gårdJektevikenNerigard and Oppigard. Our kindergartens are open for all, but we prioritize applicants the following way:
1) students 2) employees 3) everyone else

The deadline for the main admissions is March 1st. However, we admit new children all throughout the year if there are available spots.

You submit your kindergarten application through Bergen kommune’s webpage.

Are you a student?
If you are applying as a student, you must be registered as a student with one of the schools affiliated with Sammen during the year your child is starting kindergarten. Remember to specify your student status and place of study in your kindergarten application. When your child starts kindergarten, you will be asked to show your student ID or other documentation that you have paid the student semester fees. You will keep your spot in the kindergarten even if you are finished with your studies.

Are you an employee?
If you are an employee at one of the universities affiliated with Sammen, or in one of our kindergartens, you can apply for a spot. Remember to specify your place of employment in the kindergarten application.

Fagertun kindergarten is owned by the University of Bergen, and offers spots for research fellows and employees at the university, as well as five spots designated to female master’s degree students. Employees at UiB can also apply for a spot in our other kindergartens.
