The presented publication is part of the work on a scientific research project, related to a comparative theoretical analysis of the curricula and course syllabi of the professional and pedagogical training of students – future children teachers at the Vratsa branch and Pleven College of Education, part of the St. Cyril and St. Methodius University of Veliko Turnovo, and the Aleksinac College for Kindergarten Teachers, Republic of Serbia. The conception of this project, and the publications related to the project activities, concern aspects of comparative pedagogy. The comparison of the professional pedagogical qualifications of the pedagogical specialists allows for a good practice transfer and the enrichment of the curricula of the pedagogical disciplines in terms of content. The subjects of research and comparison in this publication are the curricula and course syllabi of the Pleven College of Education, which is a structural unit of St. Cyril and St. Methodius University of Veliko Turnovo, and the Aleksinac College for Kindergarten Teachers, Republic of Serbia. The main aspect of analysis and comparison is the musico-pedagogical training of students-future kindergarten teachers. In the curricula comparison, the ratio between required, optional and elective subjects has been tracked. The comparison of tuition hours allocated to the practical training of students in both institutions has been emphasized. The comparison of the curricula, which are the basis of the theoretical and methodological training of future teachers, has also been allocated a crucial role. The conclusion of the publication highlights the necessity of seeking additional opportunities of extending the practical training of students in a real educational environment.
