The purpose of this study is as follows. First, to reveal the way of infants’ exploration of physical\environment which relates to life habits in a day-care center. Second, to analyze relationship between infants’\exploration and introduction of life habits by nursery teachers. Six infants who belong to a class of first year\of life were observed for 7 months. Observation focused on infants’ exploration of physical environment\which related to washing-hands habit and clean-up habit, namely, tap and sink for washing-hands habit, and\shelves and baskets for clean-up habit , respectively. Infants weren’t interested in tap or sink at all before\nursery teachers introduced washing-hands habit, but infants were interested in and started exploration of tap\and sink thereafter. Similarly, infants weren’t interested in shelves or baskets at all before nursery teachers\introduced clean-up habit, but infant were interested in and started exploration of shelves and baskets\thereafter. Infants seemed to discover their own meaning of physical environment which related to life habits.\The results suggest that introduction of new life habit trigger infants’ exploration of physical environment\which relates to the life habits.
