Abstract

For children aged 0-6, learning is the most intense period. A preschooler is the person most interested in taking care of her child's mother. Preschool education helps children think and express themselves. Studies (Melisa Korkmaz) have shown that children who receive pre-school education have higher school attendance rates and school success in their future academic life than children who do not receive pre-school education. In this context, the importance of the teacher in the pre-school period is undeniable. No matter how good the physical conditions of the school are, no matter how carefully the program is prepared, it is the teacher who is with the children all day and implements the program (Erişen, 2004).  In Turkish society, the care and responsibilities of the child are accepted as the mother's duty. As a result, the number of female teachers in pre-school education institutions is higher than the number of male teachers. Depending on this idea, the number of female teachers in pre-school education institutions is higher than male teachers.

 

 

According to TUIK 2014 data, the rate of male preschool teachers in Turkey is 5.34%.

Fagan (1996) brings more appropriate solutions to the conflicts between children and copes with aggressive behaviors in the classroom management of male preschool teachers.

In addition, today, reasons such as divorce, death and working conditions cause the mother to assume the role of a single parent. This situation reduces the possibility of a child growing up in such an environment to establish a close relationship with a male figure. (Cameron, 2001: 430).

It is necessary to disseminate the view that men can take an active role in child care and education, to support male teachers who work or will work in pre-school education institutions, and to raise public awareness about the requirements of men in this field (McBribe & Rane, 1997; 14, Lamb, 2001: 30-31). ).

In line with all this information, the problem of this research was determined as "parent perceptions of pre-school teachers regarding gender".
