Children´s influence in preschool : A study if and how teachers are working in terms of children´s influence over forest excursions (English)
Abstract [en]

According to pre-school curriculum, the children´s needs and interests from the basis for the design and planning of the educational activities. The curriculum also highlights that all children should have the opportunity to satisfy their increasing ability to influence the content and approach. The purpose of this study is to examine whether and how teachers work in involving children's influence and interest in forest excursions.

The essay is based on a qualitative approach in which we have chosen to carry out unstructured observations by a team of three educationalists. The study includes children of 3-5 years of age.

The results show that the educationalists take advantage of children's interests and needs foremost in conversations. The children are given the possibility of influence that of which concerns only themselves and nobody else. In other words, the children are not given the possibility to influence that the educational activities that the curriculum advocates with regard to the content and approach. The results revealed a variety of reasons that prevent educators to give the children influence on the educational activities. The main reasons were related to lack of time, security context, rules and procedures.

Abstract [sv]

Enligt läroplanen för förskolan skall barnens behov och intressen ligga till grund för utformning och planering av den pedagogiska verksamheten. Läroplanen beskriver även att alla barn ska få möjlighet att efter ökande förmåga påverka verksamhetens innehåll och arbetssätt. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka om och hur pedagoger arbetar när det gäller att involvera barnens inflytande och intresse under skogsutflykter.

Uppsatsen bygger på en kvalitativ ansats där vi valt att utföra ostrukturerade observationer av ett arbetslag med tre pedagoger. I studien ingår barn i åldrarna 3-5 år.

Resultatet visar att pedagogerna tar tillvara på barnens intressen och behov främst i samtal. Barnen ges inflytande över det som rör dem själva och ingen annan. Alltså ges inte alltid det inflytande som läroplanen förespråkar barn skall ha när det gäller verksamhetens innehåll och arbetssätt. I resultatet framkom olika orsaker som hindrar pedagogerna till att ge barnen inflytande vilket var tidsbrist, säkerhetsperspektiv samt regler och rutiner.
