This article explores how some children in
Denmark, Estonia, Germany and Sweden describe their
perspective on learning. The aim of the international study
is to gain knowledge of how preschool children in Sweden,
Denmark, Estonia and Germany reflect and perceive their
learning in 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.
