When will I get an answer?
You will receive an offer when a space has been found for your child. We will notify you by sms and email using the data registered for your name in the National Contact and Reservation Registry. If there is no email address registered in your name in the national registry a letter will be sent by conventional mail to the address listed for you in the Norwegian Population Register. You can also log on to the application portal and find the offer there.
Deadline for responding
You must accept the placement within 10 days of receiving the offer or the space will be given to another child.
How to respond
You need to log on using the electronic ID that belongs to the person who submitted the application. If you do not have an electronic ID you need to contact the local district office in which the kindergarten is located.
The application will be terminated when you receive an offer.
If you would like to remain on the waiting list for placement at another kindergarten you must submit a new application. But it may take some time before an offer is given to you due to the application deadline.
If your child is already attending kindergarten you will not lose your current space if you say no to a new offer.
If you accept the offer to change to/from a private kindergarten, you need to register your resignation in the application portal.
