    The thesis is about the role of the adult in children's play. We focus here is primarily on the role or the importance of adult in symbolic play. To better understand the respondents, the survey questionnaire, I used a slightly older term fantasy game. Purpose of this study was to determine whether adults in socializing with the kids aware of their role as mentally more developed partner, mentioned by Vygotsky's theory, the extent to which they use and whether they are in the zone of proximal development of the child. As an audience, I surveyed parents at home and teachers play in the game in kindergarten. From the potential of the research I am exempt education assistants, since only these involve the children play more often than educators due to the nature of their work (not engaged in the design, the longer present in the group). The findings have shown that adults are aware of the importance of their role in the children's game, but due to time constraints associated with rare game. Even when adults join the game rarely act as mentally more developed partner. Keeping the game abandoned the child themselves but follows him, and thus do not operate in the zone of proximal development.
