Specialized teachers’ education and professional training represents a fundamental issue for the quality of early childhood education services. Researchers agree that the staff in charge with the educational activities within this educational area should have a bachelor degree diploma for the graduation of a higher education institution and should benefit from a thorough psycho-pedagogical training. In the event this initial training level is not reached, the in-service professional development becomes essential to provide the necessary skills to ensure effective care and education services. This column intends to critically review the training routes of this teaching category at the European level, with emphasis on the changes that occured consequently to the need to professionalize the educator, perceived as the main mediator of values, as child’s partner in his evolution. We will equally argue on the importance of precocious linguistic education and early language learning.
