The purpose of this paper is to determine the frequency and types of children's speech disorders right before starting their primary education, as well as the role of preschool educators in prevention and treatment of the disordes. The research has been conducted in one of the kindergartens in Zagreb. The first part of the study involved 101 participants aged from 5;6 to 7;6 years. There were three tasks used in the research: the task of describing the picture that showed children's bedroom and actions (Z1), picture naming task (Z2) and the task of repeating nonsense syllables (Z3). The second part of survey questioned the attitudes of 41 preschool educators from the same institution towards their own role in the prevention of children's speech disorders. The results of this study indicate that the incidence of children's speech disorders before starting school is 26,73 %. Furthermore, the most common speech disorders are rhotacism, lambdacism and sigmatism which usually occur as individual disorders and as voice distortion, and are also more common with boys. The research also shows that preschool educators recognize the childrens pronunciation disorders and in their everyday work they use a variety of games to encourage speech development with the aim of preventing and treating childrens speech disorders.
