Abstract

Recently, a national evaluation report points at some possible risks with an increasing individualization in Swedish pre-schools, like failing to pay attention to childrens function in social and pedagogical context. At the same time, previous research has shown that children use the content in play to get a higher position in the peer-group and how children developed specific cultures during a school year, holding mechanism to exclude some peers and to include others. This raised questions about what is going on in pre-school.

This paper defines and discusses different kinds of individualization processes related to pre-school as: formation of the human being; meritocracy individualization and political individualization.

The aim of the paper is to test and discuss a theoretical model for analysing and conceptualizing complex events within childrens social knowledge domains with special focus on the individual collective dimension. Analyses of a play sequence were carried out from the perspective of childrens agency and show further what we may call a relational individualization process.
