Studies in the recent years have showed that the preschool playground is important for both the physical and emotional development of children. The Botkyrka local government has decided to improve their preschool playgrounds in order to take advantage of these studies. The administration of childcare and education in Botkyrka is arranging a network between the different preschools where they work together to improve their outdoor environments. The network is arranging workshops and seminars where people from the different preschools can come and gain inspiration for improvements of their own preschools. The administration of properties has created a document where they describe the changes that are supposed to be made to the different outdoor environments. Through the administration of properties and the person who is responsible for the outdoor environments I was introduced to their work with the preschool playgrounds. I was given the opportunity to work with one of the playgrounds, the playground of Kungstäppan. Kungstäppan is a preschool in Tumba with close to sixty children in ages 1-6 years. They have just begun to improve their playground. They have also been given additional land that they will expand their outdoor environment into. There is a strict financial limitation on the refurbishment of the playground. Botkyrka is thus attempting to gain as much as possible with small investments. In consultation with Kungstäppan, the administration of properties and the administration of childcare and education I have worked with the playground of Kungstäppan. I've used the teacher's ideas as basis and tried to transform them into a new design. One of the conclusions I've made during my time working with the local government of Botkyrka, is that the connection between the pedagogy of the preschools and how the outdoor environments are designed is many times insufficient. They have started off well to make things better but needs to improve the methods for how to work in order to make the pedagogy more visible in the outdoor environment.
