    The article reports some of the findings of rather comprehensive research conducted on the preschool education in Slovenia, in which 810 preschool teachers participated. As regards the early natural science teaching the results show that the level of science literacy is on the increase, that the respondents are well aware of the scientific knowledge, its formation and acquisition; further, they also adopt a positive attitude towards natural science teaching at the preschool level. Despite the aforementioned they perceive the lack of professional competences as the main obstacle for more effective early science education. In conclusion, some guidelines and instructions in the field of natural science for undergraduate studies and for professional training of preschool teachers are provided.
