The article covers philosophical, pedagogical and psychological approaches to understanding the development of preschool education as the starting point of the whole educational system. The main priorities of preschool education are identified, approaches to the development of professionalism of a preschool teacher are considered. The achievements of pedagogical and psychological theory concerning the formation and development of preschool education, historical and theoretical foundations of the process of professional development of preschool teachers, their chronological periods, and their characteristics are analyzed. Thus, the following steps are defined on the basis of the criterion matrix: general theoretical (up to the middle of the 80-ies of the twentieth century.), in which the theoretical basis of preschool education was formed, as well as the programmatic and methodological design of its contents; paradigmatic (1986–91), which outlines basic concepts of early childhood education that have identified fundamentally new approaches to its content; conceptual (1992–99), which developed and presented the variant psycho-pedagogical concepts of preschool education. Also, the article reveals the problem of a modern preschool education institution, which desperately needs an educator who is able to respond adequately and quickly to changes in the educational situation, to use innovative education technologies, capable of principally reorienting them to modern priorities, to creatively solving new emerging problems, The purpose of education can be represented as continuous personal and professional development of a teacher of a qualitatively new type. Attention is paid to the fact that science has proved that the laws of creation of a new personality in the present-day conditions never more actualize the problem of professional development of a specialist in the modern theory and practice of teaching and training, and the formation and improvement of components of the phenomenon under study is possible only in the process of personality development.
