Bullerbyn & Svenska Skolan

Svenska Skolan & Bullerbyn 

Approximately every other Sunday

Svenska Skolan, 10 a.m. – 12.30 p.m.  

Svenska skolan is for children of school age (Kindergarten – High School) who speak Swedish. The children learn about Swedish history, geography and culture in a school setting. It is a great way for children to practice their Swedish with children their own age as well as learning more about their heritage. The 2023-2024 school year starts on Aug. 27.

Bullerbyn, 10 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

Taking place on the same dates as Svenska Skolan, Bullerbyn is a time for singing cherished children’s songs, reading humorous tales and having lots of fun in Swedish. Children aged 6 months to 5 years are welcome to attend with parents. Only Swedish is spoken in Bullerbyn, so Swedish should be spoken regularly at home too! We meet in the gallery space or the Children’s Museum. Kids are welcome to stay and play in the Brunk Children’s Museum after the program. Classes are free for members, non-members are asked to make a $5 per child/class donation; payment can be made at the Museum. Reservations are recommended and can be made by emailing museum@samac.org.
