ABSTRACT
The article discusses how to retain a developmental approach in kindergarten when educational accountability requires formal instruction for young students. According to the article, in the year 1970 kindergarten's purpose was reflected in the value of learning through play, but in 2009 many parents view play-based kindergartens as another year of preschool. The approaches to play of two kindergarten teachers are contrasted. Kindergarten's curriculum and semi-structured activities are discussed.
