Preschool teachers acting with toddlers in crisis situations (English)
That all children today receive the opportunity to explore all of their capabilities is not certain at all preschools. Today there are preschools that are not able to work actively to explore the children's abilities because the large number of children and not enough teachers. Therefore I want to find out with my research how the educators would react when there is a crisis with the youngest children, the toddlers. I also want to find out different ways of acting in everyday situations at the preschool and why the teachers act in that way. I have relied on qualitative methods and I have used the critical incident method in my study. In the interviews the teachers was given three different situations that could appear at a preschool and they have then told me how they would have reacted. The results demonstrate that the educators have acted with the best interest of the children in mind and that they look at toddlers as competent at an early age. How the teachers have acted demonstrates their view of the toddlers and the awareness of how competent the toddlers are.
