Primary school is an institution where certain academic skills are expected to be gained rather than an institution to which children attend within a certain period of time. Therefore, children are required to have the levels to respond to the requirements of this institution. However, it is quite difficult to say that every child reaches this maturity at the same time and in the same level. Receiving a preschool education is among primary needs in order for children to start primary school under equal conditions. When the contribution of preschool education to school maturity is taken into account, preschool education can be considered an opportunity for preparation to primary school. Therefore this study endeavoured to evaluate preschool education's reflections on school maturity and recommendations were made for people in question. Consequently, the significance of preschool education was reemphasised.
