The result shows that preschool teachers have much in common when it comes to their work compared with two different neighborhoods.... (More)
The aim of this study was to investigate and illuminate preschool pedagogues working approach with bilingual children and their families in preschool. Our common interest in this subject emerged in that we both have young children in preschool and that we have two different backgrounds in two different cultures. Data collection for this study has been carried out through qualitative methods with eight respondents through semi-structured interviews in five preschools in a medium-sized city in southern Sweden. The theoretical starting point in this study is from Vygotskijs sociocultural theory and perspective. The result shows that preschool teachers have much in common when it comes to their work compared with two different neighborhoods. The result also shows a difference when it comes to the preschool pedagogues and their approaches depending on the number of bilingual children in the activities. At preschools where there are a high proportion of bilingual children, the pedagogues are focused a lot on the importance of language, they use different meditative tool for children to learn the Swedish language and get into the Swedish society. The result shows that the pedagogues in the preschools in the northern part of the city, with a lower proportion of bilingual children, also focused on language learning as the pedagogues in the southern part of the city do, but they doesn't emphasize diversity in the same profound way as it's done in the preschools in the southern part of the city.
