Abstract [en]

The aim is to produce knowledge about the educational position of the preschool-class education. The preschool-class may be regarded as a borderland practice, a school form that cannot be characterised as either school or preschool. Studies and evaluations have shown that there is a lack of clarity regarding the mission of the preschool-class. The preschool-class teachers are active in the construction of their educational field and their teaching in the preschool-class. The concept of educational positioning is related to the framework of curriculum theory. Curriculum theories may be viewed as theories that focus three central questions: how educational goals are formulated, how the knowledge to be learned is chosen, and how methods are developed to teach this knowledge. The study examines the weekly reports that teachers send home to the parents each week. The study comprises 249 weekly letters from eight preschool-classes. The letters contains descriptions of how the teaching is organized. They also include the goals of their activities and which values the activities of the preschool-class are based on. The teachers could choose whetherthey wanted to participate in the studyor not. No names of children or schools are mentioned. The results illustrate how teachers in their weekly reports construct an educational position that is influenced both by the social pedagogical position with an existence-oriented education and the academic school readiness position by preparing children for further schooling. This causes a variation in the preschool-class education. The results raise questions about continuity and equivalence in early education.
