Abstract [en]

Background Children spend much of their time outdoor at preschool. Preschool's mission is to provide children with a rich environment that is enjoyable, and that arouses their interest to learn new skills. Since motor skills and health are positively affected by the outdoor environment should kids get a good turnout at their preschool playgrounds as possible.

Theoretical perspectives My study is based on theories from a socio-cultural perspective. The socio-cultural context is part of the outdoor environment because we experience and perceive nature depends on the society we live in and how we interact together

Purpose I want to see what kind of vision teachers and parents have on the outdoor environment when it comes to children's learning and development. I also want to find out how the teachers are using the outdoors environment and find out the parents' reason, when it comes to choice of preschool.

Methodology The work is based on qualitative interviews with two teachers and two parents from each preschool. I also conducted observations to my work. To my study, have i chosen to see the importance of the outdoor environment on one preschool run by the community board and one “all weather” (Friluftsfrämjandet) preschool

Conclusion My conclusion is that all the teachers think that outdoor education is important. The language is something they try to think of when they are outdoors with the kids. It also turns out that the parents from the preschool runt by the community board was dissatisfied with pedagogy and design while the parents of the “all weather” preschool had a more positive view of their. Majority of parents chose their children's preschool because of the geographical and depending how their lifestyle and background looks like.
