"I would separate the children into different groups based on whether they were Muslim or Finnish" : A Qualitative Interview Study about Religious Elements in a Finnish Preschool (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to illustrate how teachers in a preschool in Finland interpret their way of working on the directives on Finnish religious and cultural heritage, whilst multiculturalism in preschools is increasing. Through semi-structured qualitative interviews, six teachers have elaborated on how they interpret the directives and their way of working with this. The result shows that uncertainty characterizes the teachers and that this is based on ignorance of cultures other than the traditional Finnish culture. The teachers tend to have a colonial approach with a broad othering, where a clear “us and them”-culture is visible. The teachers attitude towards other cultures contribute to the great cleavage. My interpretation of what this results in is, apart from exclusion, a deteriorated activity for children of other cultures, as they do not receive as much planned activities in the same extent as the children with a traditional Finnish background.

Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte är att belysa hur pedagoger i en förskola i Finland beskriver sitt sätt att arbeta med de direktiv om Finlands kristna kulturarv som finns i förskolans styrdokument, samtidigt som mångkulturaliteten i barngruppen ökar. Genom kvalitativa, halvstrukturerade intervjuer har sex pedagoger berättat om hur de tolkar direktiven och sitt sätt att arbeta med detta. Resultatet visar att en osäkerhet präglar pedagogerna och att denna osäkerhet bottnar i en okunskap kring andra kulturer än den traditionellt kristna. Pedagogerna visar på ett kolonialt synsätt med en bred andrafiering, där en tydlig ”vi och de”-kultur kan urskiljas. Pedagogernas attityder gentemot andra kulturer bidrar till dikotomiseringen. Min tolkning om vad detta resulterar i är, förutom exkludering, en försämrad verksamhet för barn av annan kultur, då de inte får en planerad pedagogisk förskolevardag i samma uträckning som de barnen med en traditionellt finsk bakgrund.
