The aim of this research was to determine the relationship between attachment dimensions and Attitude towards Teaching Profession (love, harmony and value) of preschool pre-service teachers. The research data were collected using the Experiences in Close Relationships Questionnaire--Revised and Attitude Scale of Teaching Profession. In the study there were 123 preschool pre-service teachers who filled the questionnaire. Data were analyzed using Pearson?s correlation analysis and multiple linear regression. The research results have revealed a significant relationship between attachment anxiety and love dimension, besides significant relationship between attachment avoidance and value dimension. The multiple linear regression analysis results have suggested that attachment anxiety predicts love dimension of attitude of teaching profession. And also attachment avoidance predicts value dimension of attitude of teaching profession. The findings obtained from the study were discussed in the light of the related literature and some suggestions were made for future researches.
