Popis This paper focuses on cultural dimensions of class as formulated by parents and teachers regarding early care and education facilities, that are attended by their children or where they teach. Inspired by the approach of Christina Scharff, we combine ethnomethodology with discursive psychology to analyze the ways in which actors ´do difference´. We employ an intersectional approach, paying special attention to ethnicity/race, which allows us to examine how these categories intra-act. However, the entry point of analysis is class. The article draws on semi-structured interviews with parents and teachers and explores ways of ‘doing difference’ in two early care facilities: a private exclusive kindergarten, and kindergarten in an excluded area. This comparison enables us to see, how middle class operates as a normative category and recognize the agency of working-class actors.
