    The purpose of this study is to examine the view that kindergarten teachers have on the planned exercise activities for children in day-care. The research will thus not include spon-taneous movement and activities that might occur, for instance outside during play, but in-stead the scheduled activities. I aim to find out what kindergarten teachers think of the planned activities, and how well-planned the activities are. I am also curious to find out what impact the teachers backgrounds and experiences might have on the activities and what dif-ference they make. The method used in this study was qualitative interviews. Three kindergarten teachers from a smaller municipality were interviewed, and these interviews were recorded with a mobile phone. Later the interviews were transcribed and analysed. The results I got of this study were that all three of the kindergarten teachers were positively inclined to plan exercise activities with children, as they see them as an important aspect of the children’s development. In all three places the activities were planned, taking the envi-ronment into consideration. Thus the kindergarten with a useful environment around them, such as forests, could utilise these environments more than the kindergarten located in an environment that was not as useful.
