    Developing literacy begins before entering the school. The first experience with speaking children acquire in the family when they listening to speech around themselves, they start to communicate with their parents and others. The children like to listen to fairy tales, whose parents read, and while watching the press and pictorial material and while they are talking about what parents read them. In this way, children and parents spend their free time and build interpersonal relationships. Children love to watch parents reading the book, when they are shopping (writing, reading from the ticket), paying bills, cooking, therefore children soon show interest in books and writing. The task of parents is to encourage and motivate children to read, learning letters and symbols in games, where the child adopts a prereading and prewriting skills. Studies have shown that the success in reading and writing is related to how much the child in kindergarten was receiving reading and how incentives and examples for reading he was receiving in the family. With this thesis I would want to show that even children at home who did not get incentives for reading and writing, can gain in time when they are in kindergarten when an educator encourages children to various activities to prereading and prewriting skills. In the theoretical part I will present what is literacy, different kind of literacy (emergent literacy, starting and transition literacy). Whereas the development of children's literacy affect first family environment, I will as well talked about family literacy. I will be focusing on a variety of activities that encourage children to prereading and prewriting literacy. I will present how literacy is defined in the Curriculum for Pre-school Education and in the White book and how it is defined in the foreign curriculums. In the empirical part, with questionnaire for educators I will explored on what way in kindergarten are promoting prereading and prewriting skills. Questions will be open and closed type (eg. activities used to promote prereading and prewriting skills, use of libraries, encouraging parents to family literacy, the impact of supportive learning environment of literacy on children, the role of parents on child literacy, the impact of education of parents on literacy of children ... ).
