The results demonstrated that that teachers know what individualization is and know how to personalize education and training. However they realize process of education and as a main form of work using frontal teaching. The process of individualization according to the participants is dependent on the number of students in the class and conditions that the school creates. It can be concluded that individualization is not carried out in kindergartens and schools, however teachers try to introduce elements for individualization.
