This thesis aims to define and describe a pedagogical concept of quality; to explore how quality is experienced from different perspectives; to find out what characterizes a pedagogical environment of high quality; and to discuss how those characteristics can be used to improve the quality of preschool. The thesis comprises four studies, a meta-perspective of their results and a theoretical framework.
