    The following article presents the basis of art in education as defined in the international document entitled the Road map for Art in Education in the Curriculum for kindergartens, in the basic premise behind the Reggio Emilia Approach. Each person has creative potentials. Art creates the environment and practical work, as it allows the learner to actively gather the experience, to participate in the process and development of creativity. Within the framework of these guidelines, the drama/ puppets creativity is dealt with in greater detail, whereby the process is emphasized, in which the preschool teacher encourage children to explore, develop, self-express and share their ideas, concepts and feelings through drama/ puppet performances. The basic elements of the drama are the player, the story and the audience and in this creative and professionally well developed process, the preschool teachers and children can share the roles in order to develop a relationship with the theatre and to explore various areas of child development stages. The RE approach is based on practice with reflection, which again is based on project work with good interpretation of the developing documentation. In the drama/puppet process, recording, photographing, collecting ideas and products, and their interpretation play the key role in the creative theatre project, in which the preschool teacher and the child share both the right to and responsibility of the idea which is to be developed. The preschool teacher play the role of a successful juggler who at the right moment throws the ball to the children, so that they are ready to accept and continue the play. In the conclusion, the findings of the research, undertaken among the preschool teacher are presented, who participated in trainings on the RE approach to pedagogy and refer to ways of implementing puppet-theatre activities in kindergartens taken into consideration the RE Approach.
