Reykjavik - School Report Question and Answers

Is there before and/or after-school daycare available? What are the costs?

No before-school care. After-school care is available at the local Icelandic school across the street (Sjalandskoli). ISI parents can sign their child up for this if there are openings - in the after-school care, ISI children will mix with the children from the local school (Sjalandskoli). The cost is very reasonable. ISI also offers some after-school clubs a few days a week, at very minimal cost. But these clubs operate only 2 or 3 days a week and last for 45 minutes after the end of the school day, so they only provide care until 3:00 pm (since the school day ends at 2:10 pm). - Jun 2023

There's an after-school program through grade 4. After that, there are some clubs, but the kids are done by 2:30pm most days. Icelanders tend to do extra-curricular activities in their neighborhoods and not in schools so it's much harder for expat families where both parents have to work. My kids weren't involved in extra-curricular activities. - Jul 2022
