I have published a new article together with my colleague Ole Johan Sando. It draws a rather negative picture of the development towards a more safety focused an restrictive perception of children’s play in Norwegian early childhood education and care institutions. This is what we are fighting against here in Norway. At the moment it is just a tendency, but we don’t want it to dominate the provision of play in our country!!
