    Two complementary approaches in the early education and development of preschool children refer to how important it is for the teachers to know the parental practices used within a family and for the parents to be familiarized with the activities their children are involved in kindergarten. The present article refers to a research study that took place in all public kindergartens in Iasi (November 2009 – February 2010) and focused on three major elements: identifying the parents’ perception of their children’s behavior, identifying their point of view on the relation between family and kindergarten and determining the need/request of parental counseling. The survey’s findings point out there is a series of common perceptions among parents, concerning the kindergarten, most of the respondents showing willingness in taking part in parental counseling activities. In conclusion, kindergartens should diversify their educational programmes and rise the standards of parental counseling services for their beneficiary.
