About us

A little information about us and our units

Jekteviken is a city kindergarten in Bergen, located right by the faculty of law on Dragefjellet. Our kindergarten consists of three buildings, all together housing six units for both younger and older children. Outside we have an area covering one acre (4000 sq. km) that contains a swing set, sand box, play house, slide, lawn, bushes, trees, rock formations, apple trees, plum trees, redcurrant and blueberries. The outdoor area offers great opportunities for play and motor skill challenges for children of all ages.

1. floor: "Engen" - a unit for younger children between ages 1-3 years
2. floor: "Jussen" – a unit for the older children between ages 2-6 years

1. floor: "Dragefjellet" - a unit for younger children between ages 1-3 years
2. floor: "Sjiraffen" - en storbarnsavdeling med barn i alderen 2-6 år

Høyhuset  "Dokken" - a unit for younger children between ages 1-3 years "Vågen" - a mixed age unit for children between ages 1-6 years

The units in «høyhuset» are located wall-to-wall and cooperate closely with one another. Therefore, the children are often times mixed between the two units and divided into groups by age. Avdelingene på høyhuset ligger vegg-i-vegg og har et tett samarbeid.  

Our goals and values
We follow Sammen kindergartens’ common goals and values. In addition to these we have our own areas of focus and our yearly plan. As a Sammen kindergarten we also use the guiding-method Marte Meo in our work to secure high quality child-adult relations in order to support the children’s development. 

Student advantages
As a Sammen kindergarten we wish to facilitate your life as a student. Among other things we offer an exam guarantee, free rental of our kindergarten space for events, and flexible opening times to facilitate our students’ study program schedules.
