Den tillitsfulla relationen mellan förskolan och hemmet. En kvantitativ studie med vårdnadshavares perspektiv.
The purpose of this quantitative study has been to investigate the trustful relations between guardians and the preschool staff. The trustful relations have been investigated through the perspectives of the guardians. More specifically, how the guardians perceive the response from the preschool staff and if the response in question, have some potential effects on how motivated the guardians are in terms of participating. In this context, the theory of dual concerns has been applied to make it visible which strategies the preschool staff and the guardians themselves are perceived to use, when cooperating. This information has been necessary to clarify what priorities some guardians have in relation to trustful relations and thereby what needs and interests they seem to have when cooperating. A questionnaire with firm answer options have been used in order to gather empirical data. Regarding the selection, a convenience sample was chosen, which originally consisted of 133 respondents, of which 33 respondents were possible to present in the results. The results of this study indicate that the majority of the replying guardians experience trustful relations with the preschool staff and that the minority, in contrast, has more negative experiences. Compared to previous research, where guardians are mostly presented as demanding by preschool staff and preschool-students, the results of this study shows that these guardians do value relations the most, although their own needs and interests are of importance as well. Because of a lack of scientific material regarding guardians ́perspectives of cooperation with preschool, this study can make it possible for scientists and students to retest the investigation and thereby contribute to expanding the field. It can also enable the reader to gain a deeper understanding of the fact that guardians are of different perceptions and do have different needs and interests concerning themselves and their child.
