    Abstract

    : Literacy, as an asset and a prerequisite for a teacher to perform different roles as a worker in educational field, has an important role, because it is an element of teacher's daily activities, planned and unplanned. It accompanies him at every step. The theoretical part describes literacy and functional literacy through time and data on functional literacy in Slovenia. The objective of the empirical part is to compare the literacy of teachers in kindergarten and teachers in the 1st grade of elementary school. The survey questionnaire was drawn up for this purpose. The results of the survey showed that, among teachers in kindergarten and teachers in the 1st grade of elementary school, there is no major difference in literacy of an individual working as teacher in kindergarten and literacy of an individual teacher in the 1st grade of elementary school. The reason for this can be found, for example, in the fact that the majority of teachers accompany a group of children from their first year in kindergarten and work as teachers also in the 1st grade of elementary school. After one year of working as teacher in the 1st grade of elementary school the teacher returns to working in kindergarten. In the questionnaire, some teachers mentioned that they were working as teachers in both positions, which justifies the above mentioned reason for the results of my research. Teachers in kindergarten and teachers in the 1st grade of elementary school have the same level of education, which could also be the reason for the results of the research. All teachers were trained in a similar programme (many faculties carry out programmes for Preschool education) and at the time of study they received similar education and skills, which can be another reason for the findings of my research, namely that the competences of a teacher in the field of literacy are similar among preschool teachers and teachers in the first grade of elementary school.
