I want to eat those cheeks! Oscar looks adorable, and I cannot get enough of his grumpy faces...

Svensk Damtidning at their article about how the royal children start learning languages as very young. Victoria and Daniel hired english speaking nanny Katie Millington for Estelle and she has been with Estelle since she was 1,5 years old, and teaches Estelle english. Victoria and Daniel try in every day life do some nice exercises, for instance when Victoria and Estelle were in April shopping in ICA Borgholm, Victoria put carrots to the basket and Estelle counted in english "One, two, three..."
Information officer Ulrika Näsholm from the court said to Svensk Damtidning, that Estelle can already speak and understand quite a lot of english, but she shall learn it even better. The crown princess couple thinks it is useful that Estelle understands and learns english already at an early age.

Estelle has changed preschool from Äventyret in Danderyd to Montessori preschool Lilla Kvikkjokk at Djurgården, tells Hänt. It is an economic association in which parents are co-owners and the staff responsible for the daily operations and education. The operations of all children are divided into five different units. In addition to the daily Montessori work in two classrooms, which also includes gatherings and music, the children in smaller groups are active in the three other units:
- Kitchen (cooking, table setting, baking, etc.)
- Studio (Art and art history, as well as hobby craft and mini handicraft)
- Outdoor (play, nature reconnaissance and excursions)
- It is true that Princess Estelle has changed preschool. The crown princess family was very satisfied with Princess Estelle's former preschool. Probably the change of preschool is made for logistical reasons. We ask the media to continue to show respect towards Princess Estelle and the Crown Princess couple, and other children attending the preschool and their families, says information officer Ulrika Näsholm from the court.

Does school/1st grade start at 6 grades in Sweden? Does that mean that Estelle will start in 2018?

my thoughts too.

don't CP and sofia live in djurgården? maybe they also plan to send alexander there? (i was thinking maybe they can pick estelle up from school if needed, like most parents would think if they are running late out of work - but then forgot that victoria and daniel probably have an army of nannies to pick the kids up in the case of any eventualities )

Alexander and Oscar have a few years yet before preschool becomes a question. And Estelle will have moved on. I am not sure Alexander would be a consideration. Estelle had two nannies, not sure if her and Oscar share nannies or if he has his own.

In Hänt's article about Estelle changing preschool
"We have some theories why they chose to take her away from Äventyret, but keep it to ourselves when it just comes to children".

Carl Philip and Sofia live in Drottningholm now. But they are planning to move to Carl Philip's house Villa Solbacken in Djurgården, when the renovation is finished, it should happen next spring.

School attendance is compulsory for all children resident in Sweden. Children are required to attend school from the autumn term in the year they reach the age of 7, and the main rule is that compulsory school attendance ceases at the end of the spring term in the 9th year (10th year in the special school).
In Sweden most children begin their first year at school in the autumn term when they reach the age of 7. It is also possible that children start when they reach the age of 6 and in special cases 8. Education should be equivalent irrespective of where pupils attend school.
Compulsory school

Oscar (and Alexander) will probably go to preschool at the same age as Estelle, that would be in the autumn 2018. Estelle will most likely then go to preschool class. From the age of 6 children have the right to start in the preschool class. The preschool class is a school form in its own right with a large element of creative work and play. The preschool class is a voluntary school form, which the majority of six-year-olds in Sweden attend. The municipalities are obliged to offer and arrange the preschool class.
What is a preschool class

Victoria and Daniel have two nannies and so far the swedish press hasn't told that they would have hired more. The press has told that Victoria or Daniel often pick Estelle from preschool themselves.

Thank you LadyFinn. Sweden seems to start school later than say the USA and UK.

I was actually surprised to learn from LadyFinn that compulsory school in Sweden starts only at age 7. In most developed countries (and even in developing countries like Brazil or South Africa), compulsory school now starts at age 6. Furthermore, some countries (or some states/provinces in federal systems) now require compulsory school attendance until age 17 or 18. Sweden seems to be behind the curve (or not keeping up with recent trends).

It's 5 in the Netherlands, but all children start at 4.
7, that is quite late. Will they have started with the letters and numbers in pre-school?

Here in England, it can be three or five depending on which school the child goes to - sometimes, it can even be 2.5. I think you can also start school at 4. 7 does seem old to me, though I read once that Finland has one of the best standards of education in Europe because of its late starting age, as children who start school at a later age have better learning standards than those who start earlier; in most cases. It's interesting that Estelle has switched from a Montessori school.

The autumnal photo of Oscar is also adorable, he's super cute and I love the little dimples on his hands.

Although I don't want to read too much into it, I have to say that I was quite suprised by this school change. Perhaps, with the arrival of Oscar, this schools is a bit more convenient and closer to Haga.

IMO Oscar is one of the handsomest of the crop of new royal babies. He looks so healthy.
