This small scale research study reports on a new approach for young children and their families to the child’s beginning at playschools in Iceland. In Iceland the term playschool is used for institutions for children aged 1 – 6 years. It is based on the belief that the child’s main method of learning is through play. Therefore playschools are schools where learning occurs through play.
