The purpose of this study is to show how the modern society, with demands, expectations and the time constraints of adults, affects children and the everyday life at the preschool. Our intention is also to show the importance of identify stress symptoms of the children.
The study is of qualitative empirical kind and is based on a questionnaire to 19 parents of preschool children at the age of three to five years old. Interviews are made with four preschool teachers on one preschool. An observation of children in possible stressful situations is made during three days each at two preschools.
The results show that the modern society affects children and can be stressful. It also affects the everyday life at the preschool. The results show the significance of having strategies to prevent stress at the preschool in order to create a balance between demands and expectations in the everyday life and time for recreation.
