Report: Values in Norwegian preschools

In 2010, the University of Stavanger initiated a collaborative project involving seven preschools in Rogaland. The report entitled "Verdier i barnehagen. Mellom ideal og realiteter" (Values in Preschool. Ideals and Reality) has now been submitted to the boards of the preschools involved.

In 2010, the University of Stavanger initiated the project, which is partly financed by the municipalities, the preschools and the University of Stavanger. In 2013, the project was expanded to become a Nordic project entitled"Values education in Nordic preschools: Basis of education for tomorrow" with support from NordForsk. The Nordic aspect of the project continued through to the end of 2015.

The researchers in the various Nordic countries will now continue to work on various forms of data construction and, among other things, will look at how values have been communicated in Norwegian preschools compared with other Nordic countries
