Planned physical activity in preschool : A study that examines educators experiences of their work with planned physical activity in preschool (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur pedagogerna upplever deras arbete med planerade fysiska aktiviteter. Undersökningen ses utefter ett normkritiskt perspektiv. Yrkesföreningar för fysisk aktivitet (2016) skriver att barn och ungdomar rekommenderas att röra på sig och få upp pulsen ca 60 minuter varje dag, vilket kan göras genom att exempelvis cykla och springa. I studien kommer jag att undersöka ifall pedagogerna följer dessa rekommendationer eller hur mycket fysisk aktivitet barnen faktiskt får på förskolan. Studien kommer att belysa betydelsen av den dagliga fysiska aktiviteten för barn i förskolan samt också studera vilka konsekvenser barn kan få när det går miste om den fysiska aktiviteten.

Denna studie gjordes genom kvalitativa intervjuer, där två förskollärare, en barnskötare och två förskollärarstudenter (båda har en barnskötarutbildning sen tidigare) intervjuades. Resultatet i studien visade att pedagogerna hade en positiv inställning till fysisk aktivitet och de upplever att deras arbete med fysisk aktivitet oftast sker i sammanhang med en samling eller spontant. Det framkom också att pedagogerna upplevde att den planerade fysiska aktiviteten ofta prioriterades bort och några tyckte att barnen rör sig tillräckligt utomhus och i den fria leken.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate how educators perceive their work with the planned physical activities. The study is seen along a norm- critical perspective. Yrkesföreningar för fysisk aktivitet (2016) writes that children and young people are recommended to move and get their heart rate up to about 60 minutes each day, which can be done by, for example, riding a bike and running. In the study I will investigate if educators follow these recommendations or how much physical activity kids are actually getting at the preschool. The study will highlight the importance of the daily physical activity for children in pre-school and also to study the impact children can have when it goes missing out on physical activity.

This study was made through qualitative interviews, where two preschool teachers, a child caretaker and two preschool teacher students (both have a child caretaker education since earlier) were interviewed. The results of this study showed that the educators had a positive attitude to physical activity, and they feel that their work with the physical activity most often occurs in the context of a collection or spontaneously. It was also revealed that the educators felt that the planned physical activity, often, the priority was given away, and some thought that the kids move enough outdoors and in free play.
