This paper is based in a research in the early childhood education area and its main goal was to describe, analyze, and interpret the dynamics of the relationships that adults and children establish in the spaces where they interact inside a daycare. In order to capture the dynamics of the social relationships of this daycare, a methodology of ethnographic inspiration was used and written and photographic material was produced in the observations. Aiming at broadening the examination of that social reality, a socio-spatial study of the daycare facilities and of the adults and children involved in that school was carried out. Using the framework of the sociology of childhood, we focused on analyses of the relationships inside the daycare between adults and children and these to each other, as active social actors in the processes of socialization. By the analysis categories constructed for such end, it was possible to conclude that both in the conflict and tension relationships and in the ones that seemed more harmonic, adults and children produced symbolic representation regarding the world with which they interact and, in the case of the children, the elaboration of childhood cultures.
