Trying to reach the sky!
Welcome to Café Dania. The children have been playing "restaurant" all week. Today, they served delicious "mud-food" to hungry guests. They have even created menu's in English and Danish. They have a kitchen team, waiters and waitresses and a very hard-working manager who keeps track of orders, bookings and looks after the guests as well. So fun and creative. Happy Spring!
Wishing all Dania Families a happy Half Term Break. See you all again in a week :)

We teach children to be themselves so they can learn for themselves. London Scandinavian School

Operating as usual


What do we mean by "Scandinavian learning"?

Well, it's so many things but it starts with being present and engaged in the present which fosters meaningful connections between students and teachers, readying the mind for learning.


We're looking for a passionate, creative, organised professional to join our warm, friendly community.

EXCELLENT! We are so proud of recent ISI School Inspection report. By ensuring our students leave our school confident in themselves and their abilities, they will succeed!

We are also pleased with our GOOD academic rating, you can read the full results here:


Snack time socialising! It's in these moments when children slow down to and connect with each other and their teacher, letting them know how their day is going and what's on their mind. These small moments of simple pleasures are what makes our school special.


Join us on 23 May and discover how our unique blend of Scandinavian learning methods helped deliver us an *EXCELLENT* rating for personal development from the Independent Schools Association.

We have places for children of all background between 2 and 8 years of age. Formerly known as Dania School, the school was founded in 2013. Follow the link in bio to sign up and learn more.


Learning, like life, isn't always easy, but our teachers challenge themselves to slow down and remember there is joy in every moment. It's .


Our learning question will infuse all our lessons through the term. Growing up is a process of change and by inviting students to pause and notice the changes within themselves, they are also noticing how their environment impact them. Teaching this awareness is just one way our students are .


We still have a limited number of places for our September 2023 Reception class.

Email [email protected] to learn more about how we align Scandinavian learning methods like in-the-moment planning with 7 Areas of Learning in the Early Years Framework. With small class sizes, we are able to provide each meet each child exactly where they are, creating the space that allows them to grow into confident, lifelong learners.


Form drawing is a creative tool that can help settle the mind and warm up writing muscles in preparation for a lesson. As children's energy changes day-to-day, so do the forms.


We ❤️ udeskole!

Danish for "outdoor school" we aim to be outside several hours a day and have several fully outdoor days a year. Rain or shine, there's nothing like fresh air to engage the senses for learning.


“Education is not about filling a bucket. Education is about lighting a fire in each and every student." – Casper Rongsted, Nordic Schools

Dania Scandinavian School has been around since 2013 offering children in North London the space to develop into confident learners. Former students have gone on to primary and secondary schools in London, Denmark and abroad.


"We teach our students social skills, which means they know their feelings and they know about empathy. They can handle conflicts with other children because we've been there along the way to help shape them into robust young people." –Louise Bojsen Craddock, former teacher


Creating a safe space for children to develop their strengths is how confidence is cultivated.

❤️ Kids love to learn, and we love to let them!


Our small class sizes allow teachers to meet children exactly where they are, inviting them to be active participants in their learning from the start.


We’re getting ready for our traditional celebrations! These perfect sticks for fastelavnsris were found in and we’re decorating our barrel for the slå katten af tønden.

Celebrated before Lent with candy, fancy dress and a unlucky cat, Fastelavn is like a sweet Scandinavian mash-up between Halloween and Carnival.


Taste, Touch, Sight, Sound, Smell! We're infusing the senses into our learning this term.

Our senses play an important role in how we experience the world. By challenging them, kids become more aware of their sensations and how they can engage with them. It's one of the ways create hygge into our learning.


Do you have a passion for helping young children discover the joy in learning in a creative and supportive environment?

We are looking for an experienced Level 2 or 3 EYFS Practitioner as well as those wishing to gain experience.

Dania offers something different, and very special.

Children, parents, and the staff at Dania make up one big family.

One thing that's different here is that all the children of all ages get a chance to mix together.

That's a unique opportunity to socialize, learn and play together.


We believe all parents should consider Dania for their child.

Here in London, there are few schools that can offer such an experience for children.

Teaching the British curriculum, and using Scandinavian education style, including a lot of outdoor play is unique.

Come and find out more on our website -


Parents often ask us how children that attend Dania School do once they move on.

Don't take our word for it.

Here's Nana explaining how her son is getting on.


Want to understand how school lunches work at Dania?

Here's Headteacher Katie Howard explaining.


Every day we take the children outside.

By learning in an outdoor environment, we give children new opportunities to develop and learn in new ways.

Since moving to our new location, we're now lucky to have Highbury Fields just opposite the school.

This gives the children a great outdoor location to be able to spend time.


How do we monitor student progress at Dania?

At Dania, it's essential that our teachers get to know their students really well.

Knowing the individual helps to really personalise the learning for our students. And personalised learning leads to improved outcomes.

This isn't the type of learning often received in mainstream academic settings.

To learn more about how we track progress at Dania School London read the blog here -


At Dania we foster an environment where children have the space to learn and grow at their own pace.

By facilitating a student-led culture our young learners grow into confident, curious and equipped young people with the capacity to take on the world.
