Abstract [en]

Our research is about conflict management in preschool. We want to limit our research to conflicts between children and how educators handle different types of conflicts. With this study, we want to find out how educators deal with different conflicts between children and which strategies educators use to deal with such conflicts. In the study we also want to find out how educators can handle conflicts in a learning way and develop the learning around children. We have also chosen to investigate conflict management as learning opportunities, since we believe that the educators approach to dealing with conflicts plays a major role in the children's education.The purpose of this study is to find out how the preschool teacher deals with conflicts between children. We also want to create knowledge about what the preschool teacher has in mind when it comes to dealing with conflicts in a learning approach for both preschool teachers and children .In our study we have chosen to originate from the socio-cultural theory of Lev Vygotsky and Richard Cohen's conflict pyramid. Based on these theories, we have chosen the terms communication, conflict, conflict management and mediation. We used qualitative methods such as semi structured interviews with three preschool teachers and three unstructured observations with children, to strengthen the study's reliability and validity, which will be clarified in our analysis and our results. Further in our research, we will explain the investigation in a reliable and credible manner in the analysis. Based on earlier research and support of observations and interviews, one can say that conflicts are essential and necessary in children's daily lives at preschools. Conflicts are important for children in order to understand the feelings of others and themselves. Earlier research shows that preschool teachers can handle conflicts between children in a constructive way by seeing conflicts as positive and learning opportunities. In conflicts the children can learn new strategies to deal with conflicts on their own with help of interaction with others. The children also learn to respect the thoughts and feelings of others.
