In the pre-school period which is described as a critical period for Children's mental, physical and personal development, The psychomotor development is one of the most important development areas, greatly affects the lives of children at later ages. When psycho-motor development of children realized fully and healthy, they gain significant emotional and social benefits. Therefore, educators in preschool who support the development of children's psychomotor, reveal their abilities and allow them to be useful members of society, must be trained equipped in terms of professional. In recent years in our country, pre-school enrollment rate is increasing and there is increasing emphasis on pre-school education. Besides, about early childhood education policy in our country, different programs and approaches such as Reggio Emilia Approach, Montessori Approach, the Primary Years Programme and Waldorf approach are considered. And they are applied in some pre-school special education institutions. Pre-school education which is carried out in our country has entered into a process of transformation the adoption of the European standards. Innovative programs and approaches will be implemented in all preschool education institutions soon. In the consortium we have created; Halide Edip is our applicant school, MTAL is the consortium coordinator, Fatma-Haci Huseyin Akgul, MTAL and Piraziz CPL are the members. Our schools have similar problems and needs such areas as the quality of vocational training, internationalization and institutional capacity. Our school students who are being educated in Child Development and Education Area, must perform professional specialization while consolidating theoretical training they received in our school with the internships they do in domestic applications. But, domestic internships for our students are not enough to gain them vocational skills. Our students are graduating without having the qualifications demanded by private sector, so that their employment opportunities are limited. If our students can gain professional knowledge and skills to prepare appropriate activities in order to implement innovative programs and approaches which intended to put into practice in all pre-school educational institutions recently, their employment opportunities will increase fairly. Therefore, our students should benefit from learning activities in Europe and should gain the skills, competence and professional knowledge according to international standards.
