    It is the management’s job to provide good interpersonal relationships in the staff, to take care that the employees learn how to communicate with each other, that they are rewarded for a job well done, that they are offered enough possibilities for professional development, that the employees are most motivated for work, that they encourage the initiative and inventiveness and that they search for solutions for improving the quality of work in the kindergarten. The management must make sure that the employees have enough possibilities to express their opinions, that they are autonomous and independent at doing their job and that they are offered relaxation activities which affect the contentment. The management and all employees need to contribute to a better organisational climate in the staff. In the theoretical part of the master’s thesis we researched the organisational culture and climate as well as the differences between them. We concentrated on how we can measure and assess the organisational climate. We were determining how the management can affect the organisational climate. We presented in greater detail the dimensions of organising the climate, namely: the contentment of the employees, the familiarity with the vision of the mission and the values, the motivation, the encouragement of the employees, the working hours, rewarding, praise, payment, health and wellness. Furthermore, we were also interested in interpersonal relationships and communication which affect the organisational climate. In order to determine the possible obstacles that affect good interpersonal relationships, communication and motivation, we centred also on conflict solving and on what the mistakes and obstacles in communication are. We concentrated on the use of colleague coaching in communication as well. In the empirical part we researched what the climate of professional workers in Posavje kindergartens is like, what is their contentment with work like and what affects their contentment, does the kindergarten’s management encourage the employees with professional development, what is the communication like, as well as the motivation among professional workers. The analysis was done with the help of a quantitative research. Kindergarten teachers and kindergarten assistants from Posavje kindergartens took part in the research. In the research we found out that there are differences between the kindergarten teachers and the assistants in the point of their collaboration in establishing the kindergarten’s vision, mission and aims. Statistical analysis showed that the professional workers evaluated the internal relationships with a slightly lower rating. We also found out that the professional workers are not informed enough about what goes on in the kindergarten. The professional workers confirmed that the kindergarten’s management encourages them in professional development. The analysis also showed that the employees are motivated for work regardless of their years of service and that they are satisfied with work. With the findings we prepared some starting points that can lead to improving the professional workers’ contentment.
