Att bedöma kvalitet i förskolan: Vad föräldrarna vill ha!
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The Swedish preschool combines both education and care from a holistic point of view. This makes it even harder for both parents and the educators to make an objective evaluation on their own preschool. In Sweden we are proud to have one of the world’s best preschools. It is regulated by the government and is obligated to undertake critical evaluation from the state and the parents that are the consumers of these services. I have chosen to look closer on how these quality reports are made and how they are used by the preschool. Is it even possible to make such evaluations based on so very different ideas on quality as a concept? What is con-sidered good quality from the parent’s point of view and what do the government mean with good quality? In my investigation I interviewed parents and asked them on this subject. In this report I will present the result of these interviews. I have looked at previous researches on this subject and my results gave a picture of miscommunication between the parents, the state and the preschool. The parents are valuing good care in a safe environment by engaged teachers in the preschools. The state and the preschools mostly focus on the quality of the children’s edu-cation and how the preschool´s work with the values that the curriculum stipulates.
