Younger Children´s Influence in Preschool : A Study About Educators Approach to Younger Children´s Influence in Routine Situations Present in the Preschool (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to learn more about how educators in the preschool reason about younger children´s (1-3 years) opportunity to affect the actions in existing or daily routine situations. The target group is the work team at the preschool who is responsible for the younger children. 

A semi-structured interview study was completed. I have performed interviews with two preschool teachers and one childcare worker who all belong to the same work team. The preschool is situated in a medium-sized city in Sweden with one section for younger children and one section for children in the age 3-6.

The results show that the work team have an open-minded approach to facilitate opportunities for each child to influence the daily routine situations at this preschool.  The results indicate that there are both obstacles and limitations that makes the desire to enable children´s influence. One example mentioned by the work team is the large child group, that makes it more difficult to pay attention to all the children. Another obstacle mentioned is how the organizational constitution for some of the daily activities lack flexibility.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur pedagoger i förskolan resonerar kring yngre barns inflytande i de rutinsituationer som existerar i förskolan. Målgruppen för studien är all personal i ett arbetslag som arbetar med de yngre åldrarna i förskolan.

För att besvara undersökningens syfte så har semistrukturerade intervjuer med öppna frågor genomförts. Tre pedagoger har blivit intervjuade på en och samma, denna förskola är belägen i en medelstor stad i Mellansverige.

Resultatet visar att pedagogerna har ett öppet förhållningssätt gentemot barns inflytande och att de vill bli bättre på att skapa förutsättningar i de rutinsituationer som beaktats. Resultatet visar också att det finns utmaningar i verksamheten som gör arbetet med barns inflytande svårare. I denna studie nämns bland annat barngruppens storlek och strukturen på verksamheten.
