Relationships and difficulties: The invisibility of children’s peer relations

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


Children’s peer relations constitute a key element in the everyday life of small children’s life in Danish preschool institutions and have a vital meaning for wellbeing and learning. Never the less these relations tend to be inferior or even invisible in administrative, pedagogical and even critical discourse on preschool activities. This paper discusses a number of structural reasons for this – and the effect of current educational policies with their focus on academic preparation and planned activities.
