The Burnout syndrome is emotional, mental and physical exhaustion state formed, while working under long unresolved stress arising from work situations. Folowing the data gathered of European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (2002) on the effects of stress (estimate the loss of time and costs of health care), the European Union countries are losing about 20 billion euros. European studies (Jenaro et al., 2007) revealed the prevelance of work-related stress and burnout syndrome: 28% of workers are experiencing stress in the workplace, while 23% of employees have already experienced burnout. It is noted that the Burnout syndrome is spreading in the public, it is an urgent problem at the moment. In recent years, researchers of many countries, focus on psychological aspects of educators daily work, the number of stress tests done to educators has been increased and obvious signs of Burnout syndrome occured.
An educational institution psychoemotional health not only of pupils but also of teachers is important.
In recent years researchers from different countries focused their attention on psychological aspects of teachers’ work, the researches on stress expanded in number and the significant spreading of the syndrome of professional burnout (Butler, Constantine, 2005; European -Wide Survey on Teachers Work Related Stress, ETUCE, 2011; Loonstra, Brouwers, Tomic, 2009; Schaufeli, Leiter, Maslach, 2009).
According to international TALIS (Teaching and Learning International Survay, 2008) survey, some countries e.g.Lithuania, Slovakia, Estonia and etc. are countries in which pedagogues’ life can be related with such features as outer and administrational assessment, paying less attention to responses of colleagues and his/her own duties. This causes tension and can raise the burnout syndrome.
Preschool education teachers are the part teachers’ community; they are influenced by problems of the country’s education at the macro level, as well as distinctive problems of the organizational level.
