This article debates early childhood education during the dictatorship in Brazil. To do so, it analyzes documents from the MOBRAL (Brazilian Literacy Movement). As a result, it explores the following issues: psychology having a leading role in teacher's education; theoretical versus practical approach; voluntary work instead of professional education for future teachers.
