Values education in Nordic preschools: Basis of education for tomorrow

What kind of future citizens do we need to foster in early childhood education in order to build cohesive pluralistic societies in the Nordic countries? In an increasingly diverse society, this question is highly relevant.

The project focuses on issues such as how the national educational policies frame values education in preschools; the form, kind and gender patterns of values education in preschools; and the similarities and variations in values and values education between the Nordic countries.

The results of the project are relevant for a broad spectrum of target groups across the fields of scientific research, teacher education, and educational policy and practice in the Nordic countries and beyond.
