Sammanfattning: The purpose of the thesis is to gain knowledge about how preschool teachers talk about the handling of children's ethnic differences circle time. In order to collect data, qualitative interviews with preschool teachers at five different pre-schools in the Stockholm area have been selected. In the result analyzed with discourse analysis as applied and through Laclau and Mouffe's discourse theory, eight different concepts (characters) emerged which preschool teachers use when talking about children's ethnic differences. The result shows which discourses are actualized when preschool teachers talk about children's ethnic differences. Within the various discourses it emerges that preschool teachers talk about differences by using the concepts of differences, language, culture, ethnicity, interculturalism, justice, identity and equal value. Some of the preschool teachers talk about the concept of ethnic differences as a possible exclusion of children's equal value, which means that they instead want to talk about similarities. What has emerged from the study is that the concept of ethnic differences can be replaced by ethnic diversity in order to enable another meaning which also covers everyone's equal value.
