Abstract [en]

This essay is about how five different Christian preschools handle various issues related to religion: how they work with religion on a daily basis and how they celebrate Christian holidays. My research material includes interviews made at two of the schools and an observation at another one.The one I have observed at is situated in a small town and the ones I have interviewed are situated in a suburb of Stockholm. The other three I have sent questionnaires by email which they have answered. Of these five Christian preschools one is connected to the Swedish church, one to the Salvation Army, two to the Mission Church and one did not have a clear connection. The three questions that I have tried to answer are:

•How do educators/staff describe the integration of religion on the Christian preschools on a daily basis?

•How do the educators/staff in the preschools in the study work with holidays?

They pray before the meals, they use the Bible as part of their gatherings and they let the Bible’s Golden rule inform every activity to teach the children to treat each other well. One of the five preschools has decided not to celebrate holidays at all as part of their operation and let the children celebrate with their families. The other preschools use holidays as a starting-point to connect to the related stories of the Bible and as a basis for further talks with the children about the messages of these stories.
