To create a quality partnership between pedagogues and diverse family structures, it is important to have positive attitudes towards parenting competencies of single mothers and the whole family dynamics. The aim of the research was to question attitudes of pedagogy students towards different types of single motherhood. The difference in attitudes towards various types of single motherhood considering students’ socio-demographic characteristics was analyzed. The research was conducted by means of a questionnaire. The participants were pedagogy students (N=110) at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The results showed that pedagogy students mostly express positive attitudes towards single motherhood, however, there is a difference in attitudes concerning the type of single motherhood. Female students show more positive attitudes towards all types of single motherhood. First-year graduate students have more positive attitudes than first-year undergraduate students, which leads to the conclusion that the education of professional associates - pedagogues has a major role in creating positive attitudes towards different family structures and improving cooperation with parents from such families.
