Abstract [en]

The leisure time center is an important arena for families and children in school. However, there is a lack of knowledge about the leisure time center’s role in children’s transition from preschool to school. Research has shown that transitions are a critical event which often involves discontinuities. Therefore, this article investigates how children’s transition from preschool to the leisure time center in school is organized and conducted, and how the leisure time center can construct and provide a sense of continuity for children in this transition. The leisure time center can be understood as an arena at the intersection between other educational settings. By cooperation and sharing information with teachers in other school forms, the teachers in the leisure time center can provide important support for children in transition. By arranging priming events, teachers can help children to create security and meaning in the transition as well as before the actual entering into the setting.
