The swedish school system
When you’re new born in Sweden, you’re most likely to stay home with your parents / parent until you’re around 1-2 years old. But after that age it’s most common to start kindergarten (dagis). When you’re about 5 or 6 years old you start preschool (förskolan), that’s also called year 0 in vernacular. After that you start your three year primary school-time (lågstadiet) where you learn to read, write and count. By this time you’re about 9 years old and you move over to middle school (mellanstadiet). When you’re about 13 years old you start junior high school.
