Abstract [en]

In my scientific essay, I an experienced child minder, describe two different preschools cultures and investigate how preschool culture can be influenced and created by different conditions. In my first story I describe a professional preschool with a preschool director who is involved in the activities every day. The second story is about a preschool that is characterized by a different preschool culture and members of the staff who are stuck in old patterns and with an absent preschool director. What is it that really creates a professional preschool? I want through my essay highlight pedagogues child perspective, attitude, approach to ethics and preschool values. I'm also researching preschool manager's responsibility and commitment in the preschool educational activities. The text treats communication as an important aspect of a preschool to function.

To examine the issue of preschool culture, I use current research literature on professional ethics reflecting on what it is that can affect a preschool culture. It's also about the pedagogue’s ability to handle different situations with children, parents and colleagues, in a respectful manner.

All employees within the preschool have the same mission and commitments including through preschool curriculum. "Why is there a difference between preschool cultures and the quality of preschools? And "How can I, as an experienced child minder, influence and develop the educational activities, values and attitudes that have characterized a preschool for many years?" I have come to the conclusion that commitment and understanding about the preschool assignments both from the preschool manager and pedagogues contribute to how a preschool culture is created. Above all, each and every individual within the preschool has an important role in the preschool in order to create a professional environment with a culture of good quality.
