Risteigen student kindergarten

The Student Welfare Organisation runs Risteigen student kindergarten in Kongsberg. Risteigen has a central location in a quiet residential area close to Kongsberg centre. We have a spacious and fun play area outdoors where the children can explore. There are two departments: Askeladden and Tyrihans. The kindergarten is well-organised, and the children spend a lot of time working and playing in small groups. We admit children aged 0 to 6.


Our employees are skilled, experienced and professionally trained. They are dedicated to their job and are committed to providing quality, values and experiences for you and your child. For us, the most important building blocks for a child's well-being, enjoyment and learning at kindergarten are a feeling of security and belonging, and getting to know the other children and kindergarten staff.

Risteigen student kindergarten has a spacious outdoor area where children of all ages can explore and play. We are also lucky to be only 300 metres from Lågdal Museum, where the children have the opportunity to meet farm animals such as horses, sheep, cows, rabbits and goats during the summer months. The museum also has numerous small houses and buildings from the region, some dating back to the 18th century. We use the museum frequently for expeditions, particularly during the summer. We are also close to Jonsekollen, the town and forest.

"All the children who attend our kindergartens shall have the opportunity to have a say in how they spend their time at kindergarten, and they shall be met by adults who are willing to listen to them."

Our opening hours:

Monday-Friday: 07.15-16.45


Welhavens vei 15, 3613 Kongsberg.
