Abstract [en]

This study sheds light on preschool teacher’s and principal’s view and practice of how systematic quality work affects the equality in preschools. In January 2020, the convention on the rights of a child became part of Swedish law, which strengthened children’s rights in the Swedish society and childcare. The preschool’s current curriculum states that all children have the right to equivalent preschool education. In order to advance towards fulfilling this objective, the application of SKA is utilized as a means to monitor quality and ensure development. Our purpose with this study is to examine preschool teachers and assistant principal’s perception of systematic quality work in relation to equivalent preschool education along with the work of equal treatment - which is practiced within preschools. We will also define how they experience their opportunities within this matter. We mean to further examine how the convention on the right of a child’s integration in Swedish law affects the work of preschool staff. The desired outcome of this research study is for it to contribute to a more profound development of practices in preschool education. This qualitative study was supported by arranging interviews, involving four preschool teachers along with two assistant principals. When we compiled our data, we were able to draw a connection between the participant’s interpretation of the concept of equality and quality within preschools. 

In summary, we see a connection in children being deprived of their right to equality within the preschool and surrounding factors, which explains this finding. In our compiled data, there is seemingly a diversity in how concepts are perceived among the principles within the preschool organisation. Apparently, various structural frame factors also had a significant impact on the preschool’s equality. In our findings it appeared so that teachers' approach towards children’s different needs and prerequisites was vital to work supportively for children’s right to equality in preschools, which in turn also affects the quality of the preschool itself.
