This article focuses on some of the choice points and their implications for professional and organisational development in Swedish preschool.

By combining feminist pragmatism and feminist action research, some analytical points are made regarding the significance of organisational settings and the limitations they can have on the professional practices within the organisational setting.

The preschool teachers in this study show that pedagogical change is possible, although it takes time and is not necessarily endorsed by municipal employers.
