    Practical pedagogical training is crucial at the beginning of the student’s professional development; the student acquires a set of skills which are necessary for the work of a childcare worker and is also given an opportunity to work in an authentic learning environment. The thesis consists of a theoretical and an empirical part. In the first part I focus on the education of kindergarten teachers, their professional growth and describe the phases of such growth. Then I present empirical learning, mentor, competences of a student and conclude with an overview of the history of practical training in Slovenia. In the thesis the importance of practical training is analysed, the types of training are listed and its process of work in Ljubljana from 2011 to 2014 when I attended the Faculty of Pedagogy is described. In the second, empirical part, I use quantitative research to explore the opinions of pedagogues — mentors about students’ practical work, about the significance of practical training for students of pre-school education and to research their views regarding tasks and problems they face when mentoring students. The results of the research show that mentors realise how important practical pedagogical training is. They agree attaining practical experience is of paramount importance only attainable in an authentic work environment and real work conditions. Mentors are generally satisfied with their cooperation with Faculty of Pedagogy, but wish to take part in additional training programs and also to be given more feedback on their work. They are aware of the significance of their work in all areas of education. Similar results were shown in the research where mentors expressed their wish to receive more training in mentoring, which further proves they are fully aware of how significant practical pedagogical training is. The pedagogues pointed out duration of practical training should be prolonged and wished students to gain more knowledge of the curriculum.
