Norwegian parents are now spending more on kindergarten locations than in 2021

In January 2022, the average household paid a total of SEK 3,106 to the kindergarten. At the same time, in 2021, the total cost was SEK 2,991.

During the year, parents will pay an average of 34,165 in 2022, compared to a national average of 32,142 kroner last year, according to statistics from the Norwegian Bureau of Statistics. This means that the average household in January 2022 will pay 3.8% more than in January 2021.

The monthly average price for 2022 will be divided into a fixed price of SEK 2,770, with a national average of 334 kroner as a food allowance and 2 kroner as a monthly surcharge. There are 11 payment terms per year.

There are some differences depending on the region. Annual payments were the lowest in Agder and the highest in Møreog Romsdal, with average annual payments calculated at SEK 32,717 and SEK 35,293, respectively. The low annual payments for Agder’s children may be due to the low maximum prices set by the city of Sadar for kindergartens.

The Norwegian Statistical Office partially explained the cost increase, saying the government raised the highest price from 3,230 Norwegian krone in January 2021 to 3,315 Norwegian krone in January 2022, nominally up 2.6%. increase. According to the Statistics Norway, the majority of municipalities follow a nationally determined rate. In addition, average living costs are increasing in both municipal and private kindergartens.
