Αγιάσογλου, Θεοπίστη Ι./ Agiasoglou, Theopisti I.

Aim: Τhe subject of this formal project is the investigation of preschool children’s perceptions for the concern of city. Methods: The survey was conducted in preschool children through informal - semi-structured interview, having a free discussion with the classroom researcher-kindergarten teacher. Results : The children show the main concerns and worries of the modern cities. They recognize the main characteristics of a city in the light of egocentrism and the perception of space, similar to that of their developmental age. They state the areas of preference of their game, which are mainly the free - open spaces, but at the same time they raise the concerns about the way they live, move and act in the urban space. Then the children painted their city or part of it and described their work. The projects were analyzed by the researcher. Conclusions : It is obvious that the children's perception of the city is identical with the modern research studies, the limitations that are subject, but also the difficulty of understanding this way of life, as well as the problems that arise, so the children’s "natural" space is their city.
