Abstract [en]

This article explores how some children in Denmark, Estonia, Germany and Sweden describe their perspective on learning. The aim of theinternational study is to gain knowledge of how preschool children in Sweden, Denmark, Estonia and Germany reflect and perceive their learningin preschool and other surrounding social contexts. The results are based on 51 focus group interviews from 181 children. The results indicate that,in general, children from all four countries seem to be aware of their own learning. One can conclude that encouraging children to think about what they are doing and why they are doing it makes the activities more goal-oriented from the children’s perspective and thus more conscious. Children are able to describe their own perspectives on learning.
