Abstract

In this article, we study recently graduated employees who work
as kindergarten teachers and who have completed either university degree
(kindergarten teacher) or polytechnic degree (social pedagogue). We compare
the respondents’ conception of their work profiles, perceived competencies
and stress. The data consist of a survey answers (N = 54), that were analyzed
by applying quantitative methods. Both respondent groups recognized
the ambiguities in job description and division of labour between kindergarten
teachers and nursery nurses. Both respondent groups had difficulties in
getting time for planning and preparation work, however, the social pedagogues
found this issue more problematic. The difference was statistically
significant. Overall, the social pedagogues evaluated their work stress being
heavier than teachers with kindergarten teacher’s training. The number
of statistically significant differences was not many, but the evaluations give
a wholesome picture of the differences between employees who work as kindergarten
teachers with different educational backgrounds.
