Children's participation / involvement in life of kindergarten and making decisions about things that concern them - is a key feature of citizenship education in early childhood. Children can be active members of their institutions and can contribute in meaningful ways. Slovene kindergartens are organized as day-care. Therefore, it is important for teachers to ask themselves if children have enough opportunities to create their institutional life. A study has been made to investigate level of decision-making among children and teachers in kindergarten. According to teachers, levels of decision-making are mostly low. Children participation is limited to planning daily activities; teachers’ power is limited to implementation of curriculum. Hardly any have influence on classroom environment. Teachers also don’t influence team meetings.
