My purpose of this study was to find out parents expectations and knowledge of the pre-school assignments. The pre-school had a curriculum in 1998 so that the educational mandate could be clarified. I have been interested in whether parents know what the mission is and that there is a curriculum that the pre-school is required to follow. The following research questions provided answers to my purpose. What Knowledge do parents have about pre-school educator ́s mission, the pre-schools assignment and the curriculum? What do parents consider to be the most important in pre-school, care or a educational content? What kind of Influence and participation do the parents describe that they want? My theoretical basis for processing and interpreting my collected empirical data is a hermeneutical approach. My empirical material are the opinions of parents, their thoughts, knowledge and expectations of the pre-school. This is a qualitative study in form of interviews of parents with children in pre-school. I have worked with open unstructured interview questions to get descriptive answers about the parents knowledge, experience and expectations of the pre-school.My conclusions are that parents have a knowledge and awareness of the pre-schools assignments. When they express their expectations the childrens comfort and wellbeing is a priority, that pre-school represents a learning is seen as less important in this context. The parents saw that pre-school was primarily training in social skills and thus further prepared for school. Other learning about knowledge is seen as less joyful and something school should stand for.
