Tórshavn City Council to review its daycare system
A new daycare centre in Argir is part of a planned overhaul of daycare in the capital region
 

Work is underway in the newly elected Tórshavn City Council to review its entire daycare system.

The review includes an assessment of the BARN online registration system for daycare centres, which has recently come under fire from parents and daycare workers, saying it is inflexible and compromises pedagogical principles.

”The City Council’s new coalition agreement includes a plan for a review of the entire daycare system,” says Annfinn Brekkstein, who chairs the council’s culture committee and oversees the daycare system in Tórshavn Municipality.

“We are acutely aware of the criticism against the BARN system, and we will be taking a close look at how we can improve it for all parties concerned.”

He adds that preparations are underway and a complete set of review recommendations will be passed on to the City Council administration in mid-February.

“As part of our plan to increase the overall number of daycare places, we have also set out to build a new daycare centre in Argir.”
