    Child comes across written language on every step within his closer and wider environment. Preschool period is also called the emergent literacy period with which the process of spontaneous developing of skills and knowledge is emphasized. The skills are developed in a written language environment and are previous to formal reading and writing. The development of literacy in this period is under an important influence of the environment which is to a child primarily his family. Researches confirm a link between the skills with which children enter school and their later learning success. In this diploma thesis we highlight the most important elements of emergent literacy and determine their influence on reading and writing. Skills and knowledge with the highest predicting value on later reading and writing success are phonological awareness, language skills, knowledge of print and family socioeconomic status. By developing literacy in the preschool period we contribute to an easier learning of reading an writing. That is why we present guidelines as well as some activities for developing certain skills. In the last part we present three programmes which provide direct and indirect developing of emergent literacy skills and are implemented on a national level.
