Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to contribute to the discussion of the privatisation and marketisation of childcare in Sweden from the perspective of public preschool teachers. Interviews were conducted with three teachers and their principal. The respondents were asked to elaborate on their experiences of the recent establishment of a nearby private preschool and its possible impact on their own preschool practice. A narrative analysis revealed three key narratives in the data: the market narrative, the narrative of the good public preschool and the narrative of professional freedom. The key narratives made visible a local sense making and re-negotiation of cultural discourses about marketisation, making freedom of choice a prerogative for public preschool teachers instead of for parents. We argue that this may have implications or the teaching profession and teacher identity.
