2014 (English)In: International journal of transitions in childhood, ISSN 1833-2390, Vol. 7, 3-15 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article reports findings from research on children’s perspectives of the transitions from preschool to compulsory school via the preschool class. In this article transitions as possible threats, continuity and ‘smooth transition’ and are discussed. As in many countries around the world, there are indications that preschool and school in Sweden are moving closer together in terms of assignments and content - movements that are likely to affect even the youngest children. The results highlight the complexity of transitions and its implications for educational practice, but also shed light on the organizational conditions which children have to cope with in transitions.
