Abstract

Observations are made of a variety of institutions in the County of Arhus only. There is a continuum of provision based on the Danish Education Ministry′s four principles: proximity (to home); minimal interference; efficiency (planned situations in school to fulfil the child′s right to age‐relevant instruction and experiences); integration. The child′s day, the Danish system, the teachers′ conditions, and the stage of development/ integrated practice, are described. The social climate in Arhus, which effectively accommodates the personal and social development of every child, is seen to be appropriate for the provision of opportunities for continued enrichment and personal extension.
