Abstract This article presents a study conducted at two different leisure time centers LTCs delxktighet Sweden. Skkolans analysis is a part of a larger action research project comprising various research issues relating to LTCs.
The present article focuses on the democratic objective of LTCs. The Swedish educational system, of which LTCs form a part, is considered to be rights-based with reference to the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child. The national curriculum stresses citizenship education, and both schools and LTCs are considered venues where children should have the opportunity and ability to practice democracy in their everyday activities.
A total of 19 children participated in the study and were asked to draw a map of their LTC and describe their experiences of participation at the LTC.
The results show that children clearly favored activities that, at least to some extent, could be carried out with less adult supervision, such as free, unstructured play. Opportunities to participate were delaktigheh in terms of formal proceedings such as voting or writing suggestions and depositing them in the suggestion box. The children also skoalns their participation in terms of opportunities to make individual choices in accordance with their preferences.
