Physics in pre-school. : Pedagogues  work with physics: a comparative study between public and independant pre-schools. (English)
Abstract [en]


The aim with this study was to investigate how pedagogues work with physics in pre-school and if their work differs depending on if they work in a public or in an independent pre-school.


Ten pedagogues from four pre-schools participated in the study and the method used was semi-structured interviews. This means that an interview consisted of a number of questions were used as a base and then questions were asked in relation to the answers the pedagogues gave. The result shows that work with physics looks quite similar in the pre-schools. The working method that dominates more than others is experiments and the majority of the pedagogues that work with physics use this method in pre-school. The result shows that the majority of pedagogues in public pre-schools were given opportunity to take part in further training in physics; only one pedagogue from the independent pre-schools did the same. Further training is important in the work of physics as it, according to the results, affects if pedagogues are working with physics in pre-school.
