Abstract:


In this research, it is intended to determine and evaluate the safety and health conditions of independent kindergartens. An observation form was prepared by researchers, who went to 10 different kindergartens in 3 central Bursa districts, and 100 teacher candidates were asked to fill this form. The findings show that bathroom sinks and toilets, toys, garden toys, school staircases, school doors, entrances and exits, emergency kits, installation and environmental safety are appropriate for school safety and health conditions. However, when the school furniture was investigated, it was determined that its negative and positive results are almost equal. The playgrounds of children are close to the exit gate of the school, there are also small materials among class toys around the same place, and garden toys are partially safe and health equipment has been found insufficient.
