Abstract [en]

The present study deals with the importance of play for children's learning in preschool. The purpose is to investigate the importance of play for children's learning in preschool from a pedagogue’s perspective. The study is based on two issues: How does the pedagogue´s who were interviewed reason about the impact the play has on children's development? How does the pedagogue´s approach to make play a learning situation? The empirical data is based on semi-structured interviews with four preschool pedagogue´s. The present study was interpreted using the theories of Vygotsky’s sociocultural theory, educational developing theory, psychoanalytic theory of play and also cognitive theory of play. A general conclusion of the study shows that the pedagogue’s really believe that the play has a huge impact on children’s development, for example their language development. At the same time, the pedagogue´s believe that as an educator you have to be available and provide nutrients to the play, to make the play into a learning situation. The pedagogue´s can also do exercises to develop different skills.
