Abstract [en]

Studies conducted in preschool environment points toward the importance of outdoor activity, as outdoor activities have an important role in the child's learning and development process. Further, the preschool outdoor environmental design is important for the children that need challenge when outdoors. I examine how much time children spend outdoors in three different preschool pedagogies: Outdoor, Waldorf and Municipal preschools. I also identify some different qualities of how the time is used and what the kids do when outdoors. This study used interviews of preschool teachers and observations of children during preschool outdoor activities. The results showed that all investigated preschools try to be outdoors every day. The result also shows that the children's activities outdoors differ between the preschool pedagogies. The children in the municipal preschools usually played with fabricated toys, and within Outdoor and Waldorf preschools children played more with natural and recycled materials
