Research points to the importance of high-quality environments in particular for children in vulnerable positions. In this research, we have worked with professional development in the municipality in Denmark with the highest numbers of disadvantaged children. The professionals participated in ten workshops with a focus on learning environments and playful learning. In this article, the professionals have been interviewed about their experiences with this way of working with professional development. It turns out that the length and the depth of the intervention were crucial for the professionals to understand and activate the potential in creating new opportunities for children in vulnerable positions. The focus on learning environments was essential. A risk factor in these types of professional developments is spreading the knowledge when only some of the professionals participate.
