A key factor behind the country’s success rests on its claim to be one of the most undivided education systems in the world. The principle of inclusion is taken seriously even before children begin compulsory education at the age of seven. All municipalities are required to provide daycare for children and most infants attend full-time nurseries that charge a modest fee depending on parental income. Since 2001, all six-year-olds have had the right to free pre-primary education. State schools are not selective, each student is guaranteed a place near their home and education is almost completely free – this includes learning materials, school meals, healthcare, special needs education, remedial teaching and transport in rural areas.
