Suzanne Axelsson

Suzanne Axelsson


Suzanne has a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Sheffield, UK. She specialized in Reggio Emilia, language and communication, exploring pedagogical documentation as a tool to aid memory and deepen children’s learning, and investigating what “quality” is in an early years setting. She has a special interest in the art of listening and philosophy with children, exploring how play supports children in developing their listening skills.

Suzanne has more than 20 years of experience in a variety of early years’ settings, which have given her both broad knowledge, and interesting perspectives which are reflected in her blog, Interaction Imagination.

Suzanne currently works at Stockholm University teaching courses in the preschool teacher program, and working as a consultant in early years’ settings, supporting educators with their democratic approach to play and learning. She actively participates in Education Conferences and is a well-regarded presenter on topics relating to early childhood education.
