Movement at the preschool yard : The teachers work with movement and motor in the preschool yard (English)
Abstract [en]

Movement and motor development for children is a current issue. Research shows that children are becoming more sedentary in front of the television, computer, iPad, etc. The purpose of my thesis is to study how pedagogues work with movement and motor development in the preschool yard. In my attempt to investigate this, a qualitative research in the form of face-to-face interviews was performed. Qualitative interviews is the chosen method for my research to provide as extensive and detailed answers as possible. Six preschool teachers (both with and without pedagogic education) from three different preschools participated in the research. The results show that none of the teachers worked with planned movement activities to support the development of children’s physical development. However, they all felt that movement and motor development are important for the children and that a lot of movement and motor training are already performed naturally in the outdoor stay. 

Abstract [sv]

Rörelse och motorisk utveckling hos barn är idag ett mycket aktuellt ämne. Forskning visar att barn nu för tiden blir alltmer stillasittande framför bland annat tv, dator, Ipad. Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka hur pedagoger arbetar med rörelse och motorisk utveckling på förskolegården. För att undersöka detta gjordes en kvalitativ undersökning i form av kvalitativa intervjuer. Totalt intervjuades sex pedagoger (både barnskötare och förskollärare) från tre olika förskolor. Resultatet visar att ingen av pedagogerna har arbetat med planerade rörelseaktiviteter för att främja barns motoriska utveckling. Däremot ansåg de intervjuade pedagogerna att rörelse och motorisk utveckling är viktigt för barnen och att det till stor del sker naturligt i utomhusvistelsen.
