This paper is situated within the general framework of a PhD study and looks at one aspect of the data analysis regarding discourse. To understand this aspect of the data analysis, the context of the study, will first of all be discussed, as well as the use of discourse and how practices such as repeating children at 1Preschool can result from particular discourses. The study addresses some concerns I have had during the course of my work as an early childhood teacher. These concerns relate to the practice of repeating children at preschool, and also the related practice of 2returning children to preschool from Year One, despite a growing body of research that argues against such practices. This paper is part of a study that looks at these issues.
