A large literature analyzes the attachment relationship between teachers and children who attend the nursery, and emphasizes that the existence of simultaneous multiple attachment relations, for positive outcomes and for clinical evidence, can compensate for an insecure attachment to a parent. The present study examines with an semi-structured interview, the beliefs of educators on the attachment and the appropriate strategies to promote it. The results are not in favor of a polyadic view and, indeed, in many cases the teachers still think that the attachment is only between parent and child.
