    Abstract

    A Danish study (Children’s ombudsman 2011) shows that children are rarely involved in decision making in their ECEC (Early Childhood Education and Care) facilities. Children express a need to be more involved and listened to. The first aim is to present and discuss methods of how to voice children’s own perspectives on everyday life. The second aim is reflection on the significance of such children’s perspectives on pedagogical knowledge and practice. Our research on children as participants in research and in institutional developments addresses overall interests in democratization and humanization, that can be traced back to strategies for Nordic welfare developments and the Conventions on Children’s Rights.
