Drawing on a Nordic action research project on values education, this chapter describes a developmental process in one Finnish preschool. The educators worked two years with researchers in order to promote the realisation of caring values and ended up with a practice called “armchair pedagogy”. Armchair pedagogy offers concrete means that enable embodying caring values, such as calming down and engaging in communicating with children, bodily closeness, genuine listening, reciprocity, and prioritising.
