Day-Care in Denmark: The Key to Social Integration

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskning



The chapter explores central notions of appropriate social behavior in what is arguably the most important institution in Denmark when it comes to social integration, namely day-care, also known as pre-school.

Moral values guiding everyday practices are generally taken for granted. When interacting with ethnic minority children and their parents, however, staff are occasionally forced to make explicit the reasoning behind their actions. A focus on the interaction of ethnic minority children and their parents in day-care centres therefore provides insights into the cultural beliefs and values which structure daily socialization practices in a Danish day-care, and by implication in Danish society.
