Through a sociocultural perspectivethe purpose of this study is to investigate how preschool teachers look at quality development in preschool and how they perceive their participation in this development.
I have used a qualitative method based on five interviews with preschool teachers from three different parts of Sweden. I used an interview guide with open questions. The interview answers were categorized in themes based on the responses which were most frequent. In the result I have been using an analysis based on these themes. The result showed that the preschool teachers consider that the leadership style affects their work. They agree that a democratic leader promotes the development of the preschool quality. The foundation of this the preschool teachers think is that communication, interaction and trust are central in the leadership. The result also showed that the five preschool teachers have different opinions about their participation in the development of the preschool quality. Some of them do not think their leader take advantage of their competences. To feel that they are participating in the preschool development, they consider it is important with good communication. The preschool teachers who feel that they are participating express that the leadership see their competences, encourage them and let them know that they are important to the preschool. The last conclusion is that communication is central to the preschool's development. It is important to be conscious of the different parts of communication and to use them.
