Over half of Norway's kindergartens are now run by private companies, according to the latest figures from Statistics Norway, with a sharp increase since the coalition government took power in 2005.
 
Today 52 percent of kindergartens in Norway are run by the private sector, compared to just 26 percent in 2005. 
 
Just 523 of the 3,400 private kindergartens are non-profit associations, down from 748 in 2005. 
 
"The large increase in corporation organization is a clear indicator of a commercialization of the sector," said Linn Herning, a spokesman for Alliance for the Welfare State.
