Abstract [en]

The purpose of this scientific essay is to highlight how preschool teachers’ different definitions of free games affect some children’s free games. At the same time, I explore how free games that look a bit chaotic from the perspective of preschool teachers find no place in preschools, even if they are healthy for the children who have a need to try their own made up games. Lastly, my dilemma is about the teacher´s role, who must be present in children's games to provide support and nourishment for all different types of games. I reflect on different free play situations and analyse both children's and teacher's perspectives of free games, with a view to better understand the world of games. To be able to open the door to that world, it requires a key that in my experience is to participate in children’s games. Since there are different games, I try to adjust to the level of the game. There I discover about the inner potentials and abilities of children that are not usually seen. Something that is hidden behind their lively games and is less attentive. My mission is to be able to lift what I discover, to be able to influence others' views and perspectives on children's games.
