Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate if pedagogues treat children differently, depending on the children's sex. In the study, interviews are made with pre-school pedagogues about their thoughts on gender education in pre-school. The research questions are as follows:  How do the pedagogues treat children depending on their sex in some pre-selected situations in pre-school? What do the pedagogues think about gender education in pre-school?  How do their reasoning about gender education differ from how they treat girls and boys in their every day practice?

In total nine observations and six interviews have been made in order to analyse these questions. During the observations we wrote down keywords, and we used audio recording to record the interviews. The overall theoretical framework is based on Yvonne Hirdman's work on gender theory. The results of this study show, that the pedagogues on numerous occasions do not treat girls and boys equally. All pedagogues, however, say that they either treat girls and boys equally, or that they hope that they treat girls and boys equally. A conclusion in the study is that the reality of the pedagogues’ treatment of children of different sexes, is not compatible with the pedagogues’ perspective of how they treat the children
