Research output: Contribution to conference without a publisher/journalAbstractResearchpeer-review


The presentation discusses preliminary findings from a newly initiated
research project on professionals’ Work with child well-being in Danish daycare institutions. Child well-being is a familiar focus in pedagogical work. Although terminology and approaches may be different, most (if not all) pedagogical traditions that have played a role in Danish and Nordic pedagogical discussions,
are concerned with children’s well-being, and the term is central to practitioners’ professionalism. The political interest in well-being is often linked to concerns about social mobility, early interventions, health, and learning. This results in the Development and use of large numbers of tools, surveys, and
Measurement instruments that aim at shaping practitioners’ Work and qualifying political intervention: Well-being Work is increasingly institutionalized.
