In Russia, in March-April 2020, as part of the COVID-19 lockdown, almost all preschool educational institutions were closed, but the e-learning format was much less in demand than in other countries. From the one hand this situation can be explained as Russian preschool institutions interpret the distance format as possible (for example, for certain categories of children), but not mandatory. Therefore, in Russia preschool teaching during the lockdown period can be characterized as spontaneous in using of distance learning technologies, which is explained, among other things, by the unpreparedness of preschool institutions for such work. Important factors of such readiness: the level of digital literacy of educators; the level of technical (digital) equipment (tools) of preschool institutions; active interest in distance technologies on the part of teachers and parents. The authors suggested that, even in a situation of rare use of distance technologies during the lockdown period, the public demand for such work was reported to contribute to create a positive attitude towards distance learning among preschool teachers. This article is devoted to testing this assumption.
