N2 - Early childhood education in Sweden has long had an international reputation for being a systemic and integrated approach to children’s needs, a family model of preschool centers and an interest in the holistic development and well-being of children. Recent changes occurring in Europe and elsewhere in education along with the reforms implemented by the Conservative government that has been in power since 2006 in Sweden have had and continue to have an impact on early childhood education. In this article early childhood education in Sweden will be presented and discussed from a historical and a conceptual perspective, and the implications that these perspectives have for early childhood education in Sweden today will be discussed.
