Abstract [en]

This paper study aims to show the presence of mathematics and science in Swedish preschools and describe how teachers integrate these subjects into their daily work. The research was a case study in a preschool in a small city of Southern Sweden. The research concerns children from 3 to 5 years old and the method used was a combination of observation and interviews. Six teachers were interviewed after the observation of their daily work. Having experienced the Greek preschools, this study also points out the Greek example in a limited way, wanting to show different perspectives of the topic.
