    In the text the authors reveal the significance of collaboration between kindergarten and a local community for providing quality care and education for preschool children. In the theoretical part the basic concepts, necessary for the understanding of the operation of preschool institutions in the public domain as well as for their quality performance are put forward and explained, and drawn on in the continuation. In the discussion on the quality of the educational process the authors focus on the concept, functions and tasks implementation of the local community and analyze the role of municipalities, which are, pursuant to the Local Government Act, Kindergarten Act and the Education Finance Act responsible for the organization and implementation of preschool education in their respective areas. Further, the authors stress the role of headmasters regarding the planning, preparation, implementation, evaluation and assessment of the preschool care and education process and the importance of their autonomy in order to establish the quality educational institutions; the authors also draw attention to monitoring and (self)evaluation of preschool activities, in particular to the "6 E " model. At the same time they express the views on the collaboration between the local community and kindergarten in Italy and the Reggio Emilia concept, respectively, in which the so called Community management is a theoretical and practical synthesis of interpersonal relationships among children, families, service providers and the wider society.
