Abstract [en]

‘’I see that you are quarrelling, what we supposed to do with this now?’’ The subject of my research is conflict management in preschool in order to gain knowledge about the perception of conflicts preschoolers, and how they relate to children's conflicts and conflict management. Moreover, I would like to find out which types of strategies are used by preschoolers to deal with conflicts and how these strategies can help to prevent clashes. Content of the research is based on the sociocultural theory of Lev Vygotsky's and Richard Cohen's conflict pyramid, describing different levels of conflict strategies. In order to accurately present the subject and answer all question I have used qualitative interviews with preschool teachers. The results indicate that the conflicts are fundamentally positive, therefore the individual or the group can develop themselves in a proper way. Preschool teachers noticed that conflicts usually appear when children are quarrelling and disagree in some situation. Many conflicts concern material issues for example toys or general misunderstandings. Preschool teachers use different strategies to deal with conflicts between children, for instance: mediating, discussing or reflecting together in conflict situations. Furthermore, communication and interaction between preschoolteachers and children are the most important aspect in conflict management, because through them people learn and develop. Preschool teachers emphasize that they work in the present as well as preventive to reduce situations caused conflicts and to strengthen children's skills to deal with conflicts.
