Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate if preschool teachers work and experience the work situation in the same way in private preschools compared to municipal preschools in Stockholm County. A qualitative method was used to accomplish the study, where semistructured interviews were used to gather data, in the form of semi-structured interviews. The previous theories and previous research this study is based on has shown that the public sector has started to imitate the private sector, and the reforms that the school has undergone in recent decades are called New Public Management (NPM). The results of the study indicate that when it comes to administrative work and documentation, the difference between the way private and municipal preschools work is different. Municipal preschools works with documentation more thank private preschools does. The study also showed that preschool teachers at both private and municipal preschools work quite similarly when it comes to how resources are used. However, the municipal pre-schools worked more in a goal-oriented and result-oriented manner than the private preschools. The conclusion in the study pointed out that, despite some differences in how they work, all preschool teachers who were interviewed in this study experienced that their work situation was good in broad terms as it is today. No major changes were desired.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur förskollärare arbetar och därmed upplever arbetssituationen på privata förskolor jämfört med kommunala förskolor i Stockholms län. En kvalitativ metod användes för att genomföra studien i form av semistrukturerade intervjuer. Teorier och tidigare forskning som denna studie bygger på har visat att den offentliga sektorn efterliknar näringslivet alltmer, och de reformer som skolan genomgått under de senaste decennierna går under benämningen New Public Management (NPM). Studiens slutsatser är att när det kommer till det administrativa arbetet och dokumentation skiljer det sig stort i hur privata och kommunala förskolor arbetar då kommunala förskolor jobbar mycket mer med dokumentation. Studien visade även att förskollärare på både privata och kommunala förskolor jobbar ganska likt när det kommer till hur resurser används. Däremot jobbade de kommunala förskolorna betydligt mer på ett mål- och resultatstyrt sätt än vad de privata förskolorna gör. Trots en del skillnader i hur de arbetar upplevde alla förskollärare som blev intervjuade i denna studie att arbetssituationen var bra i stora drag som det är idag. Inga större ändringar önskades.
