The relevance of this article is that quality of life, which would ensure the development of modern society, can be achieved only when creating the certain conditions of education that will not harm the health of children and young people and will be used to preserve and strengthen the formation of health. This requires that the teachers use the original approaches in education which is based on self-preservation. In this context the formation of a responsible attitude to their lives and health of the growing generation is one of the main directions of the teacher. In order to create the quality conditions of a modern technology of self-preservation, the research of a definite problem is nessecary. The aim of this article is to analyze the historical achievements and selection of the current ideas of improving the work of the teachers in the use of self-preserving technology in the educational space. The author draws attention to the fact that to improve the culture of the children’s health, education desire to be healthy and improve their academic achievements at the same time, requires a systematic approach and the basic concepts of health. These principles historically defined. They are the principles of healthy eating (fasting regimes, ease of preparation, variety, high biological value of food), culture movement (the development of physical endurance, agility training, mutual aid, overcoming mental stress, creating a cheerful mood by mobile games and dances), the principle personal hygiene (bathing rituals babies swimming in water), use healing properties of the sun and air (sleep outdoors, walking barefoot). Today education and health are mutually reinforcing components of the success of the stakeholders. However, the research findings prove that the traditional system of education aimed at the acquisition of knowledge and information, the formation of life skills,the insufficient level of training children for independent living, motivation for a quality of life reaches a high level and does not meet the modern requirements. This necessitates a qualitative research problem of self-preservation. In this regard the abovementioned problem remains the subject of the psychological and pedagogical research scientists.
