At Futuraskolan International Gåshaga preschool we make sure that our children feel that their voice is both important as well as heard.
Through child influence, children learn in a concrete way how democratic decision-making works. Child influence also strengthens the relationship between teachers and students and leads to greater acceptance of the decisions made. It can contribute towards useful knowledge to take responsibility, communicate, lead and listen to others. A child should have the opportunity to express his or her views freely on all matters concerning him or her. It is stated in the Convention on the Rights of the Child and in the Skollagen that the child’s opinions must be given importance in relation to the child’s age and maturity.
