Abstract: Research was done to clarify the changes of three-year-old children's play behaviour in the first year of the kindergarten. The present report discusses the changes of play behaviour between the first term and the second term. The play was videotaped and analysed under three main headings; type of play, interpersonal behaviour and other behaviour. 1) Type of play 1. 'Solitary play' and 'parallel play' decreased from the first term to the second term. 2. 'Group play'(including 'mixed sex group' and 'same sex group' play)increased from the first term to the second term both for children alone and for a group involving a teacher, and for both sexes. 2) Interpersonal Behaviour 1. 'Imitating another child', 'looking at a child', 'body contact'(both with children alone and with a teacher and/or an adult) and 'seeking contact with children' decreased from the first term to second term. 2. 'Proximity to other children' and 'seeking attention'(both with children alone and with a teacher and/or an adult) increased from the first term to the second term. 3) Other Behaviour: 1. 'Wandering' decreased greatly from the first term to the second term. 2. 'Object conflict' increased from the first term to the second term. 3. 'Rough and tumble play' and 'aggressive behaviour' were observed in boys more often than girls during the two terms.
