The quality of Swedish preschool varies giving children unequal conditions for wellbeing, to learn and develop. (Sheridan, et al., 2009). In recent years, the OECD (2015) has reported that the quality of Swedish preschools has declined, moving from first place within the OECD countries to now number three. Much angst has also been reported on increasing group sizes within preschools, high stress amongst preschool teachers, increasing child stress as well as many other issues (Sheridan, et al., 2014; Williams, et al., 2016).
