There is a video on Danish Royal Watchers where Mary is talking to the photographers (both in English and Danish) and she says that Christian will probably not go to nursery school every day but doesn't specify how many days a week he will attend.

She also hints that the main reason why they are sending Christian to nursery school is for him to be around other children his age.

DRW also mentions that the school he is going to does not offer lunch so he will always have to pack his lunch with him the days he attends.

But just mentioning that Christian will ease into this nursery school once the cameras are gone. Also do we know how many days a week he will attend? I just find it curious that they chose to start him on a Tuesday. Also another reason for him to start on Tuseday would make it a little shorter week for him and that way next week he can start for real and without the media.

If he even goes that long during the day. I can imagine he would go for only a half day, and be home for lunch. But he probably does need a snack most kids his age do.

That's very uncommon not to offer lunch. Ussualy kids around his age eat lunch very son in the morning 11:30am and sleep his siesta after that around 13:00pm!Also is very strange that he will have to pack his meal, kids ussualy needs to eat soap, so I think they will not pack the soap every day for him!! It doesn't make any sense concerning we are talking about kids of around one year old!

The Danish system is apparently one of the best, so rest assured they know what they're doing. "Lunch" may not even mean a sandwich, but something more easily digestible, who knows.

Some kids have "naps" (siesta's are more of a Latin thing... means the same i suppose) at different times. I remember when I was in kindy, we had naps around 11am. But that's going back many years so I don't even know it if was 11! But I think it was 11

Look - all I can say is that different countries/regions/localities can have different customs, and from what I've read, what Christian is going through is fairly common in a public Danish pre-school (or whatever they call it in Denmark) - brining lunch to school etc. There's bound to be some differences with the Danish system, and the systems we are used to. Doesn't mean the Danish way is "uncommon"... because in Denmark, it is common.

I hope you are meaning that children around his age should eat soup, not soap. I am thinking that his parents would rather he eat what he is used to and what they know he likes to eat.

Yes sorry "soup", but has Jasl has said maybe in Denamark is different, in Portugal kids around one year old ussualy take their luch at 11:30 soup and fruit and them take a nap from 13:00 to 15:30 and then they have lunch (milk, or iogurte), so I think it is not so usual to take soup to school, but once again sorry because I wasn't thinking that maybe luch in Demark could not be soup and then other normal meal, but maybe a snack!

Its very normal in Denmark that the kids eat "Rugbrød" a very dark type of bread with lots of nutrition in it. Very healthy indeed and one of Denmarks specialities in food.
In kindergarden they also eat fruit aroung 14-15 as a little refresher. cant see why soup should be more important than the dark bread we eat. Countries just have different traditions

If Denmark is anything like Norway when it comes to pre-schools and nurseries, the lunch meal would consist of bread and coldcuts and cheese etc. (sandwiches). Though, often (at least in Norway) the kids will make something in the kitchen for all to enjoy (rolls, waffles, soup, pizza etc.), but not every day.

Also, in Scandinavia it has been (and still is) common to bring packed lunches (not only kids, but in work life too). I think it often depends on the economy of the nursery/pre-school/school whether or not they serve lunch. I guess it has something to do with the rythm of the day too, in continental Europe it's common to have longer lunch breaks (in Scandinavia 30-60 minutes depending on where it is), so we often haven't got time to go out buy something, sit down and enjoy it and get back to work in time. Also we usually eat dinner from 3 o'clock to 7 o'clock in the evening, while in continental Europe dinner is eaten quite late in the evening, around 10 o'clock. And the working life's rythm of day affects the kids in the pre-school, since most parents who have their kids in pre-school works.

Yes Denmark and Norway are very similar at that point

So that explains why he should bring his lunch in the pack! A sandwiche, bread, cheese, is easier than soup! In Portugal all kids eat soup at luch and some fruit some rice with meat or fish also! Your luch is our break in the afternoon and then again at nigth around 19:30 kids ussualy eat the same has lunch!

Here, in Argentina, little children may carry cookies, sandwiches and whatever they wants, but the kindergarten provides what they would drink at tea time. Sometimes it's only milk, or tea and milk or more currently, chocolate and milk. That's for kindergarten. More younger children and those who stays at school day-long (a thing that I highly disaprove) take their noon meal there, and every school has differents meals.

Here's another question...do you think the other parents of the other children in Christian's nursery group will be priming their child to befriend little Chris so they indirectly become part of the prince's inner circle later in his life?

When did Prince Frederik meet his earliest "commoner" friend from his school days? Is it Jeppe Handwerk or is he a navy buddy?

As for the King Christian question...won't there be a King Frederik and Queen Mary first?

Princess packs punch in war on schoolyard terror

AS she prepares to become a mother for the second time, Princess Mary is leading the fight to protect her young subjects from the torment of bullies.
Proving again that she is beloved of the Danish people, the anti-bullying program the princess introduced from Australia is being met with great success.

Last week, when she and Crown Prince Frederik took 17-month-old Prince Christian to his first day of kindergarten, they carried with them a purple rucksack linked to the Save the Children program, the Danish equivalent of Tasmania's Better Buddies program.
Save the Children co-ordinator Lars Stilling Netteberg said the rucksack was an "obvious and personal endorsement" of Princess Mary's commitment.

Princess packs punch in war on schoolyard terror - World - smh.com.au

The article also has some quotes from Prince Henrik about his thoughts on Mary and how they are pleased how she has learnt the language so quickly and that she is very charming. I thought that was nice of him.

Prince Christian was quite composed for his first day and needless to say extremely cute.

According to the comments that Mary made to the journalist on Christian's first day, he won't be going to nursery every day of the week.

He is of course still going, the first day was an opportunity for the press to see him, so they could take pictures. By doing this, Fred and Mary want Christian to go to school and not have photographers and journalists at the school door every day.

Even so journalists are always seeking for good opportunities so they could take shots without them seeing!

I think the little Prince is a very "Serious" fellow who likes to assess the situation before he makes any moves!!!!!!!

I think it is a an excellent idea that the child mixes with other little ones of his own age and well done to the CPs for ensuring that it has happened.

I think it's great that little Christian gets a chance to go to a "normal" school and have a normal day like every other little guy his age.
