Summary, in English

The focus of this chapter is the conversations with parents that were conducted during the project "Opportunities for preschool in a migrating world". The background for the conversations with parents lies in the preschool staff's perception that what makes their particular approach unique and valuable depends on the time and care they put into contact with the parents. Several aspects of the section's practices were influenced by the staff's own experiences. Did these experiences apply to other parents, with different backgrounds and who may have been in a different situation? And could this knowledge be helpful for the staff - at the preschool or other preschools in the city - with no experience of coming new to Sweden? For all these questions, the staff felt that the researchers' "outside perspective" could be helpful. The purpose of this chapter is therefore to present as clearly as possible the views and reflections that parents had in conversations, compare their perspectives with the staff's perceptions and discuss some of the implications the parents' perspectives may have for the discussions held in Sweden about receiving newly relocated families and around parental involvement in preschool development.
