Abstract/Notes: Based on a survey of the present status of furnishing teaching materials and implements for children`s class in child care center for which no criteria has even been provided, this study seeks to explore the problems of preparing teaching materials and implements. Also, as a way of solving such problems, this study will reveal the need for recommending criteria for furnishing teaching materials and implements and will clarify the criteria for providing teaching materials and implements for children`s class at child care center. The research issues that have been formulated to achieve the objectives of this study are as follows. 1) What is the present status of furnishing teaching materials and implements for child care center? 2) How can one recommend the criteria for furnishing the teaching materials and implements required by child care center? This study has classified the child care center in Daejeon and parts of the Chungcheongnamdo region according to location, number of classes, presence or absence of evaluation certification, facility type, etc. and conducted a questionnaire survey by visiting the centers or via mail. The collected questionnaires were processed using the SPSS program. A frequency analysis was made in order to discover the general characteristics of the respondents and facilities. Also, to discover the status of furnishing teaching materials and implements at child care center according to the characteristics of facility, a crosstabulation analysis was conducted using χ2 statistic. If the results of analysis of this study are summarized, they are as follows. First, as a result of studying and analyzing the relationship between the status of furnishing teaching materials and implements for child care center and the evaluation certification, it was found that child care center that have either passed the evaluation certification or are preparing for it show better provision of such materials and implements than child care center which have done neither. Second, in terms of the question about the need for criteria for furnishing teaching materials and implements for child care center, the results show that 91.7% of respondents saw the need for such criteria. Third, when looking at the results of surveying the status of furnishing teaching materials and implements, the teaching materials for which over 60% of the teaching material items were answered as being adequately furnished made up 69.97% with 25 of a total of 41 items. There were also no teaching tool items that showed a 100% rate of provision. Moreover, there was not a single facility where all teaching implements were adequately furnished 100%, and farming villages and places that are planning to prepare for evaluation certification tended not to be furnished. When looking at the above research results, furnishing of teaching materials and implements at child care center examined here was inadequate. However, among them, the rate of furnishing was high for places that have either passed the evaluation certification or are preparing for it. One also finds that the rate of furnishing at facilities planning to make such a preparation or located in farming villages are low. Further, in terms of the need for criteria for furnishing of teaching materials and implements for child care center, one was able to see an urgency of preparing such criteria as 91.7% of respondents answered that they were necessary. Therefore, this study has recommend a set of criteria for furnishing teaching materials and implements for child care center used in the questionnaire by revising the criteria for kindergarten teaching implements as announced by each education office of cities and provinces to correspond to the needs of child care center. This study prepared and recommend criteria for furnishing of materials and implements by making a classification of 12 areas of interest including building, role, language, operation, art, math, cooking, science, tone and rhythm, sand, computer, and physical activity and of 41 teaching tool items as well as determining the requirement according to the requirement criteria for 1 class. Also, because a child care center has not only classes for children over the age of 3 but also classes for children under the age of 2, there is a need for a research on teaching materials and implements for the latter classes. For qualitative progress of daycare, research on teaching materials and implements for child care center should be conducted at the national level as a matter of urgency based on this study. / 본 연구는 그동안 교재·교구 기준조차 없는 보육시설 유아반의 교재·교구 비치 실태 조사를 통하여 교재·교구 비치의 문제점을 알아보고 그 해결방안으로 교재·교구 비치 기준 제시의 필요성을 밝히고 보육시설 유아반의 교재·교구 비치 기준을 제시하는 것을 목적으로 한다. 연구대상은 대전광역시과 충청남도의 전체 보육시설 1,134개소 중 10%에 해당하는 114개소를 연구대상으로 하여 설문조사를 실시하였다. 수집된 설문지는 SPSS 프로그램을 이용하여 처리하였다. 응답자 및 시설의 일반적 특성을 알아보기 위하여 빈도분석을 실시하였으며, 시설의 특성에 따른 보육시설의 교재·교구의 비치실태를 알아보기 위하여 χ2통계량을 이용한 교차분석을 실시하였다. 연구 결과 보육시설의 교재·교구 비치 현황은 대다수의 시설이 교재·교구 종목의 비치가 미비하였다. 그러나 그 중에서 평가인증을 통과한 시설의 경우 다른 시설에 비해 교재·교구의 비치가 잘 되어 있는 결과를 알 수 있었으며, 보육시설의 교재·교구 기준안이 필요하다는 의견은 91.7%로 나타났다. 이로써 보육의 질적 발전을 위해서 보육시설에도 교재·교구 비치 기준안이 필요하며 이에 대한 연구가 조속히 이루어져야 되고, 참고대상 조차 없는 영아반의 교재·교구에 대한 연구도 반드시 이루어져야 됨을 알 수 있었다.
