"Play is very important! Very, very important". : A glimpse in the view and work with play in Nepal’s preschool. (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to create knowledge about the view on play and work with play in Nepal’s preschools. To do that I travelled to Nepal and interviewed people who had an insight in either work regarding play in preschools or the view on play. I used a kind of interview were the person I interviewed got the phenomenon “play” to discuss and to reason about, without my values. The results show that preschool teachers in Nepal have a governing approach regarding play and that play is used as a learning technique to promote further knowledge. My results provide an increased understanding regarding different preschools and how they use play in their work. With this knowledge we can find new and different ways to use play in Swedish preschool activities. As well as a perspective on the dominant view on play in Swedish preschools.
