Gender awareness in preschool (English)
Abstract [en]

My purpose with this study is to examine whether or how teachers are gender-conscious in preschool everyday situations. That is, if they are aware of their attitude and treatment of work on gender and what gender concept has relevance for educators. In much of the practical literature that I read, it appears that many teachers are not aware of their responses and attitudes to children based on gender aspect. I have examined how the gender work differs in the two preschools that I chosen to study.The questions that this study is based on is

  • Does the educators at the preschools work gender conscious in everyday situations?-Is it boys or girls who get the most attention from educators in everyday situations?
  • What do the teachers at the preschool concept of gender?
  • What approach have been the teachers of preschool to counteract traditional gender patterns in everyday situations?

I have made ​​a qualitative study where I interviewed five educators and made ​​observations on the two preschools. In order to obtain a result, I have processed the interviews and observations, and linked to the theory and the research.The results show that the teachers at the two preschools have different knowledge about gender and work on it in preschools. Educators' awareness of the work varies depending on knowledge and past experience.
