Considered from the vantage point of children, the heterogeneous Luxembourgian field of Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) unfolds in a plurality of individual care arrangements which forms distinct structures of ‘day-care childhoods’. These care arrangements are commonly shaped by several horizontal crossings during the course of a child’s day, which do not only define children’s everyday lives, but also create a distinct space of actorship and learning. The paper will focus on those daily horizontal transitions of 2-4 year olds from a practice-analytical view. It uses the heuristic of children as daily border crossers to highlight how children are actively involved in sociomaterial practices of setting up and crossing borders and therefore are active participants of several individual and collective ‘borderlands’ in ECEC. The presented data and analyzes are related to the ethnographic research project ‘CHILD’ what investigates the ongoing positioning of children as social actors in different kinds of individual ECEC arrangements and in various respective practices, settings and transitions. The paper will introduce the theoretical and methodological framework of the project and present first analytical video scenes from the camera-ethnography.
