    It is important for everybody involved – the child, the kindergarten teachers and the parents that kindergarten and family cooperate. It is also important that the relationship between parents and kindergarten teachersis based on regular communication, collaboration, trust, respect, tolerance and equality. Furthermore, all parties involved aim for a common goal. Kindergarten provides help for parents with child upbringing and development. It also complements family upbringing but it cannot replace it. Mutual relationship is therefore responsibility of both parties involved – the family and kindergarten. The theorethical part of my diploma thesis describes the idea of subjective theory, the perspective and the expectations that kindergarten teachers of pre-school children have. The imporatnce of cooperation between family and kinergarten as well as its forms are also described. A special focus is on cooperation between parents and kindergarten in the introductory period. Towards the end, my thesis focuses on communication between kindergarten teachers and parents. The empirical part of my thesis shows the results of a survey conducted among teachers of two different kindergartens. The aims were to determine the kind of experience kindergarten teachers gain from working with parents, the perspective they have on parents and what expectations of mutual communication kindergarten teachers hold, especially in the introductory period. The understanding of the word »partnership« was also the subject of the survey. In the conclusion, it is suggested that kindergarten teachers in the introductory period have high expectations regarding parents, their communication and mutual relationship. However, exepctations differ when it comes to parents being actively involved in pedagogical work of a childcare unit. Most kindergarten teachers involved in the survey have good experience. They perceive their cooperation as successful. Their perspective of parents varies. Partnership is mostlydefined as cooperation, help, support, professional attitude, trust and appropriate communication.
