    Home and kindergarten are two social institutions that are involved with the education process of children in the most complete and versatile way. This is the reason why they mutually cooperate. Parents and educators make sure that the child's development is complex and of good quality and that the progress of the child is just the same (Nendić and Črv, 2012). In the theoretical part of the thesis I first defined the concept of family, which is the child's primary environment. I presented the importance of the family for a preschool child and specified forms, tasks and its functions. I described preschool as the child’s other important environment. In what way is early childhood education in our preschools organized, which are the principles, objectives and basic tasks of preschools. I presented why both preschool and family environment play an important role in the upbringing of children and how preschool can affect the child's development. In the last chapter of the theoretical part I wrote about the coordination of educators and parents in the upbringing of preschool children. In the empirical part of the thesis I used a questionnaire to investigate the view of parents and expert workers' on the mission of preschools and which forms of cooperation are among the more important ones in their opinion. I was interested in the types of assistance that are offered to preschool parents and if the parents take use of these assistances. The purpose of the survey was to determine how expert workers' pursue the idea of preschool as a complement to family education. The results of the research have shown that both the parents' and the expert workers' opinion is that the tasks of preschool are just those that are recorded in the Pre-School Institutions Act. In their opinion the formal forms of cooperation are of greater importance, the most important ones being office hours and PTA meetings. The results have also shown that according to expert workers preschool offers many different forms of cooperation which include the parents, but many parents do not make use of them. The parents’ opinion on this matter is that preschool is lacking in this area. The results have shown that most parents have no problems cooperating with the educators and preschool, and that the expert workers their ideas of preschool in different ways as a complement to family education.
