This paper deals with the relations between administrative texts, space-time paths and organisational processes in Japanese preschools. The empirical focus is on the plethora of administrative forms, documents and records that are found in such establishments. I show how an examination of these texts can uncover the processes by which preschools are organised. Three issues are dealt with: the place of administrative documents in the management of flows of resources, people, activities and information through such institutions; the role of written material which is disseminated throughout the country in creating a standardised set of childcare practices; and the manner by which documents are used to control children, parents and caretakers.
