English abstract
This theoretical paper investigates the relationship between socialisation and mathematics education in Swedish preschools. Socialisation is considered to be the process by which children construct their own childhoods and experiences as a preparation for adulthood. Mathematics education as defined by the curriculum outlines what learning possibilities preschools and the adults working in them should provide to children. The production and reproduction of cultural knowledge as components of socialisation are connected to the global issue of early year’s education and schoolification. I suggest that it is important to discuss how learning of content and subjectivities is a key feature in an investigation of the relationship between socialisations and mathematics education in the Swedish preschool curriculum.
