    Preliteracy or emergent literacy is knowledge and skills that children acquire spontaneously and informally before entering the school (Grginič 2005 a: 69). Kindergarten teachers that think encouraging prereading and prewriting skills are important in early childhood, offer children a lot of printed materials, picture books and children books, they also encourage them to use symbolic expressions and if they show interest, the kindergarten teachers will teach them how to write letters and how to read words (Marjanovič Umek 2010: 39). M. Montessori has found that optimal period for learning reading and writing is pre-school period (Capuder 2006). Montessori principles for the first six years of life are: absorbent mind, sensitive periods, urges to communicate, to be independent and to explore, learn through their senses and through movement (Lawrence 1998: 14). For developing prereading and prewriting skills are appropriate activities in which children strengthen graphic and phonological awareness and activities for developing graphomotor skills (finger and hand skills, ability to visual-motor assessment) and the ability to detect space and orientation in it (Grginič 2008: 14). In the theoretical part of the diploma paper, I presented the concept of literacy, pre-literacy in Kurikulum za vrtce and Montessori concept, developing prereading and prewriting skills. In the empirical part, I compared two different kindergartens, public and Montessori kindergarten. I recorded or observed activities of developing prereading and prewriting skills.
