    The diploma thesis, entitled The role of a kindergarten teacher in the development of child’s areas of strength in the early years, is divided into theoretical and empirical part. For the theoretical part I presented ways for a kindergarten teacher to identify child’s areas of strength in the preschool period and how he can encourage them, an importance of portfolio use, the role of a kindergarten teacher to promote areas of strength, how to create a stimulating learning environment and NTC learning. In the empirical part, I surveyed kindergarten teachers at Dobra Teta Private Kindergarten because I am interested in how they see their role as educators in developing and promoting areas of strength in the early years. The sample was non-random. With the help of the descriptive method and the method of quantitative research, I obtained the necessary data. The questionnaire included 51 kindergarten teachers working in different age groups with different work experiences. All respondents feel competent to discover areas of strength, of which 94.12% have already discovered them in their group. All respondents in their group use the portfolio to help monitor children's development. As many as 39.22% observe children once a week, 31.37% observe them once a month, 11.77% once every three months, 5.88% several times a month and occasionally, and only 5.88% observe them and make progress on a daily basis. According to the answers of the respondents, I conclude that kindergarten teachers use observation and attach great importance to monitoring the child's development. All respondents answered that they stem from the interests of children. Also, all respondents answered that they include NTC learning in their daily lives and that they see progress in children when children learn through games.
