Project Development


Læringsverkstedet is the largest private kindergarten operator in Norway. The Læringsverkstedet Project Development department is responsible for growth and property management at Læringsverkstedet and has extensive experience in both acquiring and establishing new kindergartens. We own and manage approx. 300,000 m2 of property.

Læringsverkstedet will continue to grow, and we will do so by building kindergartens ourselves, purchasing lots and planning projects, winning public tender competitions and by acquiring great, privately owned kindergartens. We invest, plan and collaborate with developers, architects, real-estate agents and contractors for developing lots and establishing kindergartens.

Owners with Long-Term Mindsets

Læringsverkstedet is created and owned by educationalists. We want to help the world’s most valuable resources to grow – primarily the children, but also their parents and our colleagues. Everything we do is based on a long-term perspective.

Sharing Culture

We are focusing on, and facilitating, a clear sharing culture in Læringsverkstedet. Sharing leads to new questions, thoughts and solutions. We learn together and develop both as people, and as an organisation.

Local Freedom

We know that a good kindergarten is run locally, and that our collective resources are what makes us a strong national operator. That is why we also believe in great local freedom. We listen to our new Læringsverkstedet kindergartens and find inspiration in their contributions. We meet them with respect and humility– and with ambition.

Kindergarten Models

Here is a small selection of Læringsverkstedet’s new builds and models. It includes three different varieties that represent great solutions for various situations, lots and sizes.

Our models form a basis for planning new Læringsverkstedet kindergartens. The aim is to further develop these models based on experience from previous projects and various size and lot requirements.
