    Preschool teachers' understanding of quality in preschool: a comparative study in three European countries2015In: Early Child Development and Care, ISSN 0300-4430, E-ISSN 1476-8275, Vol. 185, no 6, p. 968-981Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to highlight the concept ‘quality' with a special focus on preschool teachers' understanding and compare what preschool teachers in Austria, Bulgaria and Sweden regard as quality. Although quality is at high degree a subjective concept, some aspects are regarded decisive for good quality. A questionnaire was distributed to 45 preschools. Data have been stored, processed and compiled with the web-based programme ‘Netigate’. Totally 117 preschool teachers answered the questionnaire. The results among the three countries have been compiled, processed, ranked and compared and show a glace of different ways to interpret quality, although there are also similarities. Many differences are related to social, cultural and financial issues in the countries per se, but there are also organisational and structural differences. Further comparative research needs to focus on modes to improve the quality in preschool and on increasing children's influence.

    Does the quality in preschool affect children's health and wellbeing?2014In: International Journal of Child and Adolescent Health, ISSN 1939-5930, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 71-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the long tradition in the social welfare field the number of children in Sweden who do not feel well has increased. This statement is based on reports from preschool teachers and includes young children (1-5 years old). The purpose of this article is to stress the present situation and what can be done to better work to raise healthy and secure children who also feel well. The aim is to discuss how the quality in preschool affects children’s wellbeing? Quality does not only mean happy children and satisfied parents but also competent staff with positive attitudes and systematic quality work. It appears from research that enough time for pedagogical planning and follow-up, small child groups, high teacher density and low staff turnover are also essential. The results also show that the most critical aspects for supporting children’s health and development are quality improvements based on equality, an efficient value system, a useful curriculum, scientifically based teacher training and a school/preschool for all.

    Early Childhood Educators' Perspectives of the Swedish National Curriculum for Preschool and Quality Work2015In: Early Childhood Education Journal, ISSN 1082-3301, E-ISSN 1573-1707, Vol. 43, no 5, p. 347-355Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is today an increasing global interest in early childhood education, especially with regard to curriculum and quality work. The aim of this article is to study preschool teachers’ and child care workers’ views on the revised national curriculum for preschool in Sweden (Lpfö 98, rev. 2010), and if the educators perceive that they can conduct quality work based on the curriculum. This article is based on a web-based questionnaire distributed to all municipal preschool teachers and child care workers (in this study called educators) employed in a small municipality (n = 111). The questionnaire consisted of eight questions with 54 sub-items with five reply alternatives, including ‘don’t know’. The reply frequency was 58.6 % (n = 65). Data were compiled and processed in a computer based program. The results showed that the preschool educators were positive to the curriculum and regarded it as a tool for improving the quality in preschool. The most important factors for increasing the quality were, according to the results, the educators’ attitudes, the number of children in the group and the teacher-to-child ratio.

The aim was to explore how four heads of preschool reflect on the curriculum and the quality in preschool. This article is based on focus group methodology. The questions concerned reflections on the Curriculum for Preschool, systematic quality work and the role of the heads. The results showed that the  most important factors concerning the revised curriculum were competent staff, attitudes and values, and systematic quality work.

    Behövs specialpedagoger i förskolan?2014In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 91, no 4, p. 384-390Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Forskning har visat att vart fjärde barn i förskolan mår dåligt och har psykiska, emotionella och/eller sociala problem. Rapporter från pedagoger i förskolan visar att de sett en förändring där allt yngre barn mår dåligt jämfört med tidigare decennier. En aktuell fråga är därför i vilken utsträckning som förskollärarna har stöd från specialpedagoger för att underlätta för barn i behov av särskilt stöd i förskolan. Oftast finns ett antal specialpedagoger anställda i en kommun och de har till uppgift att serva flera förskolor. I den kommun vi studerat finns tre specialpedagoger som ansvarar för barn i behov av särskilt stöd i förskola och skola. Frågan är vilken roll specialpedagogerna har i förskolan och vilken funktion de anser sig ha? Resultatet visar bland annat att deras viktigaste funktion är som rådgivare, handledare och bollplank till personalen. De har även en viktig roll när det gäller att upprätta handlingsplaner i samarbete med föräldrarna. Specialpedagogerna bedömer att behovet av deras kompetens ökar kontinuerligt och de ser läroplanen som ett stöd i arbetet.

    Kvalitén i förskolan påverkar barns välbefinnande: Några förskolechefers syn på den nya läroplanen och kvalitet i förskolan2012In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 89, no 4-5, p. 416-424Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Nästan alla barn i Sverige går i förskola och förskoleperioden betraktas som en av de mest intensiva perioderna i barns liv och utveckling. Under denna period läggs grunden till barnens framtida möjligheter, både när det gäller socialisation, trygghet och kommunikation med omgivningen. Att personalen i förskolan är kvalificerade pedagoger har stor betydelse för barnens hälsa och välbefinnande. Förskolepersonal omfattar både förskollärare och barnskötare som dock har olika roller. Fokusgruppsintervjuer med fyra förskolechefer om betydelsen av den nya läroplanen samt kvalitetsarbete i förskolan har genomförts. Totalt spelades åtta timmar in på band och dessa har transkriberats i sin helhet. Resultatet visar att god kvalitet i förskolan bidar till barns hälsa och välbefinnande. Slutsatsen är att kvalitetshöjande arbete är nödvändigt för förskolans utveckling.
