Hazardous chemicals in pre- school : Effects on the activities of the work with "poison free” preschool (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose with this study is to investigate what information that has reach the pedagogues according to the work towards a “poison free” pre-school. The study will also investigate the pedagogue’s opinion about how the marginalization is affecting the quality and educational work caused by the removal of dangerous plastic toys that are harmful to the environment.

The marginalization of dangerous plastic toys from the pre-school can lead to unwanted consequences to the quality of the pre-schools

The study will be written from a pragmatical perspective, which according to Kroksmark (2011) are about that the pedagogues are supposed to adjust the environment to the children’s needs. Are the children’s needs affected by the removal of plastic toys? My choice of method is therefore interviews with the pedagogues to get answers to my questions.

The study’s choice of interview method is semi structured interviews and is set up so that the responder can speak freely about any given theme and make it possible for me to ask follow up questions. This method is adapted to gain a big amount of information and to get so close to my questions as possible.

The result shows that the pedagogues have gained good information about the unhealthy chemicals and been able to pass this forward to the caregivers. The effect towards a pre-school free from unhealthy substances shows that some of the responders thinks that especially one of the genders are affected by removal of dangerous toys.
