School hours: Monday through Friday 8.30am-4pm. They offer an extended day program from 4pm-5:30pm


The Scandinavian School of Jersey City  is the first full day Scandinavian inspired educational institution of it’s kind. Educating students from the ages of 1½  to 6, the curriculum is based on the inquisitive and creative nature of children at this age. Learning is project based and culture is an integral part of the curriculum and instruction: both English and Scandinavian are taught as languages.

The school was founded in 2010 by Maria Germerud-Sharp and focuses on the Scandinavian educational approach which is feeding students organic food, valuing childhood, stressing the importance of democracy, and incorporating more outdoor activities in the daily schedule. The curriculum includes  literacy, numeracy, science, art, music and technology.


Ongoing observations, documentations, and reports are made by teachers in order to convey to parents their child’s progress, success, and problem areas. In the classrooms, teachers facilitate ongoing discussions of inquiry and incorporate learning with play. Moreover, the students are often put into small groups when working on in class assignments.
