The article deals with a new model of preschool education that was developed and tested under the scope of a comprehensive project on the modernization of teacher education established by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation (2014—2017). We provide a detailed analysis of the new bachelor's and master's educational programmes in preschool education. Also, we focus on the logic and design of practice-oriented educational programmes; describe educational outcomes as well as ways of reaching and evaluating them; and, finally, analyse the content of modules of the educational programmes.
