    In this thesis I explore views of preschool teachers on the impact of kindergarten to the emotional development of one to two years old children. The first part presents the development of emotions in period of a toddler in three areas: expressing, identification and balancing emotions. Characteristics of child’s emotions which differ from that of adults, and children's emotional needs, which are also specific, are portrayed. Development of attachment and the educator as an object of child’s attachment are also presented. Briefly a few ways to promote the child's emotional development are mentioned, which can be used by teachers in their work. The second part presents the research that I conducted among preschool teachers and assistants who are currently working with children in the first age group. Anonymous questionnaires were used in the survey. Preschool teachers' views on their role in promoting emotional development of toddlers were the main focus of the survey. I explored preschool teachers’ opinions on how much time at their work they devote to emotional development, what ways to encourage emotional development are used and how much of their work in this area is planned. The findings show that preschool teachers have the impression they devote enough time to emotional development of toddlers and they use various approaches to promote emotional development. The participating preschool teachers believe that they can satisfy most of the emotional needs of toddlers and that they nearly always respond to their emotional needs, taking into account the individuality of each child. The work of two thirds of preschool teachers who participated in the survey is planned, whilst one third of preschool teachers do not plan their work in this area.
