The study traces the origins and formation of the curriculum of the Institute of Early Childhood Education, which in 1946–1950 at the Faculty of Education of Palacký University in Olomouc educated students of early childhood education for their profession as kindergarten teachers. The four newly established pedagogical faculties in Czechoslovakia were created at the universities of Prague, Brno, Olomouc and Bratislava in 1946 by the adoption of a special law. Their task was to prepare students – future teachers in all types of schools except universities. According to the statute issued by the Ministry of Education, the study of pre-school education was to last two years, i.e. four semesters. However, due to a shortage of kindergarten teachers, it was shortened indefinitely to one year, i.e. two semesters. The study analyses the curriculum of the Institute of Early Childhood Education at the Faculty of Education in Olomouc and compares it with the content of teaching at the Faculties of Education in Prague and Brno. The study of preschool education at all pedagogical faculties ceased in 1950 and was entrusted to the so-called pedagogical gymnasiums.
