Abstract [en]

This article reports children’s perspectives of the transitions from preschool to compulsory school via the preschool class. The study indicates that children’s ways of defining themselves, and the ways in which they mark borders between different school forms, change over time. In this process, time and place are crucial. The study highlights how Swedish children make two school starts as they enter the preschool class and then school. Each of these events demands energy in reconstructing identities and understandings of the new school forms.
