The object of this research is the teachers' speeches about the bodies of girls and boys in Early Childhood Education. Its objectives were to understand how this dimension is present in the school space, specifically in Early Childhood Education, and discover whether there have been times of awareness in teachers´ education about the importance of working on the topic. Qualitative research, of bibliographic character, verified the importance of thinking about gender and sexuality issues since early childhood in the school space, because the school is an environment that can both promote social ties that perpetuate prejudice and accentuate the power relations essential for the maintenance of a patriarchal and sexist society or place of respectful education and contrary to the construction of prejudices. In addition to conducting the bibliographic survey, a questionnaire was applied with three teachers from a Child Education Center (CEI) in the city of Sorocaba, S.P. It was verified the need for an education that contemplates the discussion on the construction of gender roles in childhood and that broadens the view of professionals in Early Childhood Education for young children and their relationship with themselves and with others, understanding the range of possibilities that exist in “being feminine” and “being masculine”.
