What happens when it is my child’s birthday?

Every birthday calls for a celebration and we are more than happy to celebrate birthdays at school. When your child’s birthday is coming up, please contact the class teacher. You can let them know on what day your child would like to celebrate its birthday, for example. You can agree on a time to celebrate and share treats and find out how many children will be present. In the lower years, children wear a party hat and hand out snacks to their classmates. They visit the ground floor and teachers sign their names on a birthday card. Children in group 3 and higher celebrate birthdays and share treats in the classroom. They visit all floors where teachers sign their names on a birthday card.
