Due to the very nature of the professional field -nursery- which is essentially praxiological, and the way of teaching/ delivery, the forms of mediation put into practice were studied and analyzed. The category pegagogic-communicational mediation used for the analysis of the proposals found in study guides and tutorials is rooted in cognitive psychology, educational communication, the sociohistoric school, the theory or communicative action and the epistemology of practice. This study was carried out on a sample consisting of five study guides randomly selected from courses of three areas of the curriculum and on the whole group of professors acting as tutors.
