How to enrol your child in a school-based leisure-time facility (SFO)
If your child is able to start directly in grade 0 of an ordinary municipal primary and lower-secondary school without first going into a reception class (for children with no or little knowledge of Danish), you can enrol your child online in an SFO when you enrol them in the school via Digital School Enrolment (Digital Skoleindskrivning). Your child will then be enrolled in the SFO as of August 1st of the year in which the child starts school.
- If your child is already attending a daycare facility in Aarhus Municipality, we automatically unenrol the child from the daycare facility with effect from July 31 of the year in which the child starts school.
- If you need to enrol your child in an SFO after the Digital School Enrolment has closed (open from November to December) or after the start of school in grade 0, please use Digital Placement (Digital Pladsanvisning).

Enrolment in a school-based leisure time facility (SFO) if your child attends a reception class (your child has little or no knowledge of Danish)
If you wish for your child to attend a public school, and he or she has minimal or no knowledge of Danish, your child must attend a reception class until they are ready to go into an ordinary municipal primary and lower-secondary school class.
As the parent of a child in a reception class, you can choose to enroll your child using Digital Placement either in the school-based leisure-time facility (SFO) linked with the school where your child attends the reception class or in the child’s district school. The district school is located close to where you live.
