Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to write a continuation of previous thesis that was based on qualitative interviews of how to work with environment and nature in preschool. I want to examine to what degree the teachers work with the different parts that was presented in the previous study. My method was to make a quantitative web based survey that all the staff that works with the children in the selected preschools could answer. Throughout my study I found that preschools around Sweden are working with different methods when they work with environment and nature. All the methods presented in the survey had been used by almost all the respondents. The survey showed that it was an advantage to be able to work practically with the children. Most respondents had a personal interest in the subject, but the level of education that the respondents had did not seem to influence their interest. Experience did not influence the extent of work with environment and nature, however, the study shows that it was easier to work with the subject with children in groups aged 3-5, compared to other age groups. The biggest obstacles in working with environment and nature were too big groups and too little time.
