Sigrid is currently working on a collaborative research study into wellbeing and democratic living in early childhood curricula policies. She is also working on a project examining the position of democratic living and wellbeing within early childhood workforce values and education. She has with colleagues been examining teacher's experiences of working with wellbeing and involvement in the context of an entry-to-school assessment. She has also taken part in research into parents' and early years practitioners' perceptions of children's wellbeing, with particular focus on friendship. Following these two projects research is being developed with the aim of increasing opportunities to recognize and promote young children’s democratic living and wellbeing in national and international practice and policy.
Further to this she has collaborated with Danish researchers in investigating the professional identity of the Danish Pedagogue, as well as comparative studies of Danish and English Early Years.
