This study deals with teachers ideas about the physical environment of a mobile preschool and how it affects children’s learning. The essay describes how the preschool bus is decorated and how a normal day works in the mobile bus. The survey was based on the following questions:
- Are there disadvantages and advantages in terms of physical environment in the mobile preschool from an educator based perspective?
- What are the teacher’s thoughts about the impact on children’s learning in terms of the physical environment on the bus?
Summary: To answer my questions I have participated in activities during the day and I have used the interviews to find out the teachers thoughts. My theoretical points have focused on the benefits of being outdoors as children in the mobile preschool spend much of the day outdoors. The conclusion of my investigation is that the mobile preschool is a well-structured and well thought preschool. The teachers have a positive attitude when it comes to the environment both in the bus (indoor environment) and outside the bus (outdoor environment). They believe that the exchange of different environments affect children’s learning but only in a positive way and those children learn even more than those children who attend a regular preschool.
