Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of our study is to get an insight into if the pre-school teachers are aware of how they design the indoor environment at the pre-schools and which child perspective is reflected in their pedagogical environment. We want to know if pre-school teachers design their environment so that it invites to meaningful creativity and activity for each child.Questions:What thoughts do the pre-school teachers have regarding the pedagogical environment at the pre-school?Which child perspective is reflected in the pedagogical milieus/environments?How does the pre-school design the environment so that it invites to meaningful creativity and activity for each child?The paper takes its primary theoretical starting point in the postmodern perspective. The study is based on data from six interviews with pre-school teachers and observations of their pre-schools’ indoor environment.Our result shows, that the pre-school teachers’ thoughts and child perspective are reflected in the environment. It should be in constant change, and the child’s interests and needs should be the primary focus in the design of the environment. Each child needs to get the possibility to find some activities which can develop them.
