Sammanfattning (abstract):
The challenge for pre-school teachers today is how they can nurture and educate the “future” child in a pluralistic world with different competing ethical values The aim of my thesis is to try to get hold of how teachers handle the practice of moral when nurturing pre-school children. In this paper I will discuss the theoretical foundations which lie as a base for my PhD thesis. My study will be based on the theories of phenomenology and lifeworld. In a pilot study the aim is to find out how theachers explain the word nuture. According to those findings I´m going to videotape teacher – child interactions, when acting in nurturing situations. Afterwards I will talk to/interview the teachers individually. In the conversation the aim is to let them tell about their own actions and their motives for doing as they do. I see pre-school as a practice of moral. In the everyday interaction between children and teachers there are a lot of ethical dilemmas. Research findings / results often suggest how teachers ought to do, how a good teacher should be et cetera. The aim of this study is to let teachers, on their own conditions, describe how they experience the nurturing of pre-school children. Much of the educational value research is about school and not so much about preschool. Hopefully my contribution will increase new educational value knowledge from this context.
