Children's influence in preschool- with age as the relevance : Seen from the educators perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie syftar till att undersöka hur förskolepedagogernas uppfattningar och arbete med barns inflytande på den pedagogiska verksamheten i förskolan i relation till barnens ålder ser ut. Studiens frågeställningar, hur tänker pedagogerna om barns delaktighet och inflytande i förskolan relaterat till barnens ålder och hur beskriver pedagogerna arbetet utifrån hur gamla barnen är med att göra barnen delaktiga och ge barnen inflytande blev underlaget till intervjufrågorna. Studien genomfördes med hjälp av metoden kvalitativ intervju, tre verksamma pedagoger i förskolan i åldrarna 40-65 år medverkade. Samtliga pedagoger jobbade på samma avdelning.

 Resultaten visar på att barnens ålder har relevans när det kommer till att få inflytande i förskolan, men att det även var fler faktorer som var avgörande i hur mycket inflytandet barnen fick. Det kom fram att det även kunde handla om hur moget barnet, hur mycket ansvar ett barn ska ha gentemot mognaden hos barnet. En stor faktor till huruvida barnet fick inflytande var hur pass utvecklat språket var hos barnet. Barn som hade ett mer utvecklat språk medförde att det var lättare att förstå vad det barnet ville, vilket gjorde att det barnet fick större chans till inflytande än de barnen som inte hade kommit lika långt i sin utveckling i sitt språk.

Abstract [en]

This study aims to examine how preschool educators' perceptions and work with children's influence on the educational activities in preschool in relation to their age looks like. The study's questions, how do the educators think on children's participation and influence in preschool related to children's age and how does the educators describe the work based on how old the children are when it comes to give the children participation and influence became the material for the interview questions. The study was conducted using the method of qualitative interview, three active educators in preschool aged 40-65 years participated. All three educators were working in the same division.

The results shows that children's age is relevant when it comes to gaining influence in preschool, but it was also more factors that were crucial in how much influence kids got. It concluded that  it could also be about how mature the child were, and how much responsibility a child should have in relation to the maturity of the child. A major factor to gaining influence in preschool was how developed the child´s language were. Children with a more developed language was easier to understand and  the educators could understand what  the child wanted, which meant that it had more chance to gain more influence than the children who did not have the same development in their language.
