Teaching preschool children about the environment. A comparative study of how two preschools work with environmental issues.
My investigations are based on qualitative interviews and observations carried out at two preschools, one of which has a nature and environment profile while the other works in traditional ways with these questions. I sought to explore the ways in which pedagogues in each preschool raise environmental awareness and, more generally, awaken an interest in nature in the children. The consequences of methodological similarities and differences will be considered.
This term paper concludes that the difference between an environmental profile preschool and a traditional preschool working on environmental awareness is not large. The knowledge gained by children in the latter preschool surpassed that gained in the former. Another difference was the greater commitment shown by pedagogues working in the traditional preschool. The big difference had to do with the fact that in the traditional preschool more time was spent in talking about environmental issues that in the profile school.
