Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to visualize and understand the teachers' perceptions of the concepts of movement activities and health in the preschool. This study will also include the parents’ point of view and expectations. The questions of the study are: How do the teachers perceive the concepts of movement and health from the curriculum? How are the concepts used in the preschool? How do the teachers complement the parents when it comes to their children's movement activities? The study was conducted by four interviews with teachers working in a preschool south of Stockholm. A survey was also handed out to the parents in order to collect data. For the results and analysis, a phenomenografics approach was used to find variations in the data. The results show that there are variations in teachers’ perceptions about how they work according to the curriculum. The teachers find that they can influence their work and that there is big potential in working with movement activities. A potential obstacle for this is lack of time, lack of staff or that the group is too big. The teachers gave examples of the goals from the curriculum, but far from everyone knew all of them. The survey from the parents show that most of them where satisfied with the work in the preschool regarding movement activities. The result also show that the most active families wanted more challenging activities in the preschool and the less active parents wanted their children to spend more time outdoors regardless of the weather.
