This study focus on how preschool teachers work with science and if there is any difference depending on which profil the pre-school has. In order to obtain material to this study and investigate how the pre-school teachers work with science and see if there were any difference eleven pre-school teachers were interviewed. The pre-school teachers worked in pre-schools with different profiles. The profile of the pre-school had some influence on how the pre-school teachers worked with science but the main reason was the pre-school teachers own view on the subject and their own awareness. The pre-school teachers worked with the conditions they had in their pre-schools and tried to make it in to a positive experience for the children. Their opinion was that the material they had was sufficient and that one could do much with simple things that could be found in the pre-schools. The everyday science was of great importance to the pre-school teachers and how to discover it together with the children. The reult of this study is that pre-school teachers work with science in different ways and it is mostly their own interest that leads the way. The profile of the pre-schools has a minor influence on how they work with science instead it depends on the pre-school teachers own interest. The pre-school teachers also think that it is of great importance to have science in the pre-schools and that perhaps develops into an interest in science for the children. The pre-school teachers mean that science should be a positive experience for the children to spark their interest.
