菅谷, 尚平

These days, the decrease of Physical Strength (PS) is a big issue, especially in school days. People say it is important for preschool children to do much exercises. In 2012, the Ministry of Education published ‘Preschool Exercise Guideline' (Guideline), which explained the importance of exercise and some examples in preschool. The purpose of this paper is to study Guideline and to find the problem. In this paper, we refer to ‘HighScope Preschool Curriculum' (Curriculum) in America, which is based on results of Perry Preschool Program. We confirmed the contents of Guideline, and found that there are four characteristics. And, we examine Perry Preschool Program and Curriculum. We found also four characteristics. We found two characteristics are similar that of Guideline and other two are different from Guideline's. We concluded that Guideline should include some standards about PS and much more examples a lot of adults can practice.
