Abstract [de]

This paper focuses on the study and career choice motives of students of early childhood education in the context of different job profiles and paths to professionalization. It is based on a comparison between Germany, Sweden and Switzerland. The study and career choice motives of students of early childhood education (N = 416) from the three countries are determined and compared using MANOVAs. Main differences lie in the orientation of intrinsic motives (clientele vs. society based) and in the value of extrinsic motives. The findings are discussed with regard to recommendations for the process of professionalization of early childhood education in Germany.
