Första mötet med förskolan: en kvalitativ studie om olika inskolningformer på fyra förskolor
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This is a qualitative study with four interviews, in four different preschools, in the same municipality. By making it so, it becomes a case study to describe a phenomenon in a municipality which also is the definition for this investigation. The purpose of my study is to examine what it means, in a municipality, to have different types of introduction at preschool. Where I ask the question why preschools choose to have a specific method of introduction and what are the basics and ideas behind the choice of the method? What significance do these different methods have to attachment theory? What do teachers think about the advantages and disadvantages with their choice of method?
The versions of introductions are many and may vary; the duration of the introduction may vary from 1-3 days up to 3 weeks. The introduction is about getting to know and introduce adults and children in a preschool. The methods covered in this study are the parent active introduction methods and the traditional method of introduction on 2 – 3 weeks. Introduction is something that evolves into something particular to each preschool and department, and how good the introduction is does not have to do with the type of model or method used by the teacher but rather how teachers relate to parents and children. Which method teachers choose to use in their introduction does not matter as long as preschools find an approach or method that suits the department, parents and children.
My conclusion is that there is a difference between the preschools in the municipality in regard to which method of introduction they choose to work with. Regardless of the method the teachers of the different preschools have chosen to work with, they still work towards the same goal, that parents and children should feel calm and secure, and that the teachers create a
good connection to the parents and children in order to give the children a good start of preschool. What differentiates the various introduction methods is just how long each preschool believe that it takes for the children and parents to get sufficiently introduced. The most important thing is that the teachers have a strong commitment to the introduction and that they have a common approach, which is the common factor in all types of introductions.
