Abstract [en]

The purpose of my study is to contribute to increased knowledge about how the size of the group affects teachers' work in a South African preschool, as well as how teachers describe that group size affects the child's individual learning and development. The study is based on interviews conducted with teachers who are working in a preschool in South Africa. The methodology used in the study is a qualitative interview method that has been performed on five teachers. The study results shows that teachers organize the day in a certain way to handle the size of the group and that the group size affects the child's individual learning and development. One conclusion that can be drawn from the study is that the teachers do not have the opportunity to meet the needs of each individual in a large group of children. This in turn affects children's learning and development. Teachers argue that the children who suffer most are the so called slow learners. It is a term used in South Africa to refer to children with learning difficulties.
