The aim of this paper is to explore teachers’ competence in the nurture-education process. The results show that teachers are very satisfied with the functioning of working with students. Most of them plan to work in accordance with the objectives and outcomes of each subject, using appropriate methods and techniques, they are satisfied with the training courses, cooperation with parents and the process of evaluating student achievement.
