Abstract [en]

This paper explores children’s transition from preschool to school in the Swedish context. Continuity in transition between school forms has often been stressed by for example national and international policy makers. But what is continuity? This concept is seldom defined. The paper is based on results from my forthcoming thesis, which explores children’s perspectives on the Swedish preschool class and children’s transition from preschool to school. When re-analyzing the empirical data in search for indications of continuity, I found that children in transition to school enhances that this process includes gaps and discontinuities – discontinuities that children put forward as positive.
