Abstract [sv]

The purpose to this survey is to map out the affordances available in the outdoor environment of one preschool. This has been executed through three episodes of observing children at that preschool during their outdoor play. All visible affordances has been written down and later on summarized in different themes where the most interesting meeting places in the outdoor environment at the pre-school have been described. The result of the study shows what the children at this preschool do in their outdoor environment. It also shows the importance of the arrangement of material and environment in order to be able to support childrens play. An awareness of what the environment offers the children in their play is important. It makes it possible to design an outdoor environment that encourages different kinds of playing and exploring which may support children’s development and creation of their own identity.
