Abstract [en]

Collaboration and continuity between school types are important factors

that favor long-term learning and that need to be given attention in the

transition between early childhood school institutions. This study highlights

teachers’ experiences of information sharing during the transition from

Swedish preschool to preschool class (i.e., from the child care to school)

with regard to children’s literacy learning. To find out and evaluate the

individual child’s development, the child’s actual and proximal development

zones needs to be taken into account in the transition. It appears that

some preschool teachers wish to share information on children’s literacy

learning, but it is mainly about the children’s interest in literacy activities.

Also the preschool class teachers’ wishes to know more about the children’s

literacy learning are too much on a general level to be able to provide a

good enough basis for planning literacy activities that fit every individual

child. A large part of the outcomes derives from the preschool tradition that

has viewed care as being core to its work and considered learning and

achievement as domains associated with compulsory school. This article

discusses whether the training of teachers in early childhood education

needs a stronger focus on literacy learning.
