From different documentation situation the aim of this study is to investigate the focus of the documentationas well as the communication between preschool teachers and children in these situations.The research questions are: What is the focus of the documentation? What characterizes the communicationbetween the teachers and the children when these teachers at the same time are documenting?To interpret and understand this communication Habermas’ concepts of communicativeand strategic action are used. Data consists of video observations from two preschools where the toolpedagogical documentation is used continuously.30 children, 1-3 years, and their 7 preschool teachershave participated in the study. The analyzed material consists of 157 minutes distributed on 15documentation situations. Videotaped observations, requires special responsibility of the researchteam.Written and informed consent for participation has been obtained from each pre-school’smanagement, teachers and parents. Personal information and collected data are stored in a separatelocked filing cabinet.

What is communicated and documented by the teachers have a high degree of abstraction,and the communication is of a strategic character. Issues raised relating to how preschool teachersshould be able to take advantage of the documentation. Children in preschool will develop differentkinds of skills and abilities. The critical question to be asked is if the documentations presented herelead to this?
