In Turkey in the preschool sector there are fewer male teachers than female teachers. The views of female colleagues are one factor that affects the entry of males to this sector. This study investigated female preschool pre-service teachers' views about male teachers. The data was collected through semi-structured interviews and content analysis was used to reveal the concepts and relations that explain the data. According to the findings, three main themes were determined: the presence of male preschool teachers in the profession, factors affecting male teachers' choice of occupation and ways of decreasing society's bias concerning male preschool teachers.
