Our article is a searching registration towards the wider understanding of the mothers’ opinions about education in Kindergarten. The motive for that became the scientific substantiation of empirical research that:
a. the participation of mothers in the pedagogical work of Kindergartens depends on the information as far as the preschool education is concerned and
b. their positive position is a herald of a permanent cooperation to the preschool programs(Powell,1989,Sakellariou,2008)

Sixty interviews with of preschool children mothers took place. After the data analysis concerning our research, we recorded a positive opinion of the mothers for the education of kindergarteners through an big amount of variables. The research results are also interpreted with extracts from the interviews which substantiate the presentation of the problem offering better understanding.
