Abstract [en]

This study examines how preschool teachers are working together with the children, and how much the children actually influence the work. In order to examine this, a qualitative study has been made, examining four preschool teachers thought and attitudes towards children's influence in some of the most important parts of their daily work. The study examines how preschool teachers are working with the children's influence in early childhood education. This is also the main purpose of the study.

The questions made in the study to answer the main purpose are:

  • What does the preschool teacher think of the term democracy in general?
  • What do preschool teachers think about children's influence and how do they work practically with this in their daily work?
  • How does the preschool curriculum define children's influence?
  • To what extent does children's influence get limited in the daily work?

The study has used previous research about children's influence in preschool andalso uses the preschool curriculum and the CRC. It shows that the participating preschool teachers working with children's influence within the various parts of preschool activities do so by taking advantage of the children's interests and opinions. At the same time, there may be situations where the children are not given as much influence. The study also shows that teachers assume the perspective of children and child perspective.
