Abstract [en]

The focus of this study has been to examine a number of municipalities that work to recruit more men to work in preschools. The aim of the study has been to identify ways of working conducted by municipalities aiming to recruit more men to work in preschools. The study includes seven municipalities, all included in one network specifically aiming at the raising the number of men working in preschool. Interviews and discussions were carried out with key persons involved in the local work to recruit more men to preschools. This analysis can show trends in initiating the concrete work. The results show that an organization is needed and the formulation of objectives provides the organization. The organization and objectives contribute to continuity in the work, something that long-term areas for change often need.
