The key aspect for all pedagogical actions of kindergarten teachers are the continually changing circumstances in the lives of boys and girls, as well as societal expectations which gain more and more importance. The changing circumstances also require professionalism to be seen as a dynamic variable. In Austria, professions in the field of early childhood education and care are still a work in progress. The current state of training of kindergarten teachers reflects this. The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate what the current training of kindergarten teachers looks like and subsequently asking graduates, which already work in the field, for their professional opinions regarding their education. Based on their answers, strengths and weaknesses of the training with regards to practical application can be evaluated. As a method of collecting data, narrative interviews were chosen, because they allow interviewed persons to be more direct and state their opinions and views more openly. The result displays the urgent need of change. Basically the graduates are satisfied with their education. But they also report deficits concerning some aspects. The main problems mentioned were the currently not working transfer between theory and practice, not enough knowledge of organizational matters as well as working with parents, teamwork and inappropriate didactics. Additionally the great variability in the quality of teachers as well as supporting kindergarten teachers is a cause for sometimes poor educational quality. Concluding, it can be said that there is a necessity for progress in the training of childhood education and care system, so boys and girls can be supported according to their needs.
