Barnehage (Norwegian for “children’s garden”) surrounds children with the language and culture of Norway through music, dance, creative play, crafts, games, stories, and food. All activities, curated by the internationally recognized teachers from Concordia Language Villages, take place in a safe, supportive, fun environment - all in Norwegian! Barnehage is a unique, foundational experience for life-long learners of Norwegian. The program is a natural precursor to Skogfjorden, the Norwegian Language Village, a Norwegian language and culture immersion summer camp for young people ages 7 to 18.


CLV’s Barnehage curriculum is based on a series of fun themes that ensure each class builds on the previous one, continually challenging the learner. Teachers emphasize both language and culture as important to children’s broadening world view, and the themes are specifically designed with this in mind.
