This paper takes point of departure in research approaching both empirical and theoretical challenges related to the study of very young children’s everyday lives in institutional settings. In this paper, we present an analysis of pedagogical practice about developing democracy and influence for children in a Danish nursery. On the one hand the paper highlight the situated processes of developing a pedagogical practice of influence and democracy for children, emphasising the explorative and experimenting character of such processes, and on the other hand show, how exactly processes like these tend to be neglected and restricted in the management strategies of documentation, that forms institutional conditions for the pedagogues.
