Abstract: The present paper analyzes scientific research studies on the familiarization of children at pre-school age with the natural environment to the effect of forming an appreciative attitude to nature as a cultural value. The basic structural components of the concept are outlined: the cognitive, the affective, and the behavioural one. Arguments from the theory and practice of education have been advanced which prove the necessity for developing a theoretical model of pedagogical intervention for the formation of an appreciative attitude to nature as a cultural value.
Keywords: nature as a cultural value, attitude and structural components, pre-school mixed-age group
