    Third year students have been performing in winter semester a project called intercultural education in language and ethnically heterogeneous classes. Project was performed in kindergarten Šentvid, unit Sapramiška. The purpose of this project was to raise awareness of children about acceptation or not acceptation of difference, to promote awareness of their own diversity with social games and to strengthen the ethical judgment using an inductive approach (Kroflič, 2007). I have followed and evaluate the project. In my diploma project intercultural education in kindergarten, I have used causal-nonexperimental method for research. Research is based on analysis of multiple activities of project intercultural education, includes analysis of video material, own observation, written notes and evaluation. Thru my diploma I have verified the use of methodic approach, in which the children are faced with problems of possible conflicts in intercultural environment and try to find a feasible solution. The project was focused on getting to know and then to experience similarities and differences between children as positive experience and advantage; we have created the foundation of cultural tolerance. At the same time, we have encouraged critical thinking and ethical judgment and creation of different problem situations and identifying non-violent ways of resolving the dispute and the creation of the agreement. The purpose of the project is to assess the extent to which the project is implemented through the content and process objectives of individual performances and intercultural education project a series of successive operationsappearances. I believe that our objectives were achieved. The children followed us with a variety of issues, with the commitment to work with the game, creating, thinking and identification of problem situations. Thus, we come to the conclusion that we must accept diversity as an asset and thus also to experience. We have learned that it is good to think critically, just so together we come up with different solutions of problem situations. We have found that we can recognize non-violent ways of resolving the dispute and save them in agreement. We provide to children through the activities a lot of experience, that we are "all different in different ways." In the long run, this approach will enable the children to a positive attitude towards diversity at the level of kindergarten, the creation of an internal culture that marks the efforts of active tolerance.
