In this research, the proposals of prospective teachers in pre-school training about the problems of pre-school education which are defined by the literature analysis have been put forward. 700 solution proposals are gathered from 140 prospective teachers who are included in the research by providing 5 solution proposals each. When analyzing the gathered proposals, 140 prospective teachers concluded on highly important 5 solution proposals out of 40 solution proposals which they have already specified. These are in order: "arranging the pre-school buildings and classrooms conditions according to the characteristics of childrens' development," "reducing the classroom size," "explaining the importance of pre-school education to the parents and improving the cooperation and communication with them," "enlarging the classroom space," and "mainstreaming inclusive education." These prospective teachers concluded on the least important 5 solution proposals as follows: "electing the pre-school prospective teachers by an interview," "employment of doctors and nurses in the pre-school education institutions," "emphasis more on skills like music and painting in the pre-school education process of prospective teachers," "provision of experiential and informational support by the retired pre-school teachers," and "shortening the pre-school lesson hours."
