Abstract [en]

Children attending the early years of school in Sweden are faced with three different types of school: Preschool class, after-school care and compulsory school. The aim of this paper is to analyse the use of place in the transitions between these types of schooling. The use of place in the transitions from preschool class and first grade to after-school care is studied using ethnographic methods, mainly participant observations. The meaning created is seen as situated, that is, dependent on place. The term place is used a fusion of place (the physical dimension of place) and space (the significance of place) (Cresswell 1996; Christensen 2003; Halldén 2007). The results demonstrate different ways in which place is used in everyday life to create meaning about the transition from preschool class and first grade to after-school care and that children and teachers assign different meanings to after-school care, preschool class, and first grade and that place plays an important part for this. When understanding school, place is of various importance for children and teachers. When teachers mainly use time to create similarity and difference, the children rather use place to create similarity and difference between school settings. The use of place in terms of spatial integration or spatial separation is central when activities and types of school are understood as similar or different by the children. The results show that place and the way after-school care, preschool class, and first grade is organized is important for the meanings assigned by the children.
