The aim of this study is to determine ideas of the kindergarten students on day-night, seasons, and the phases of the Moon. Although there are lots of studies on kindergarten students about science education, few of them are present on astronomy. Fifty-two students (age 6) from four different kindergartens were chosen as a sample of the study. The data were collected by using a semi- structured individual interview protocol. The results of the study revealed that kindergarten students have some sort of misconceptions on each concept. Individual interviews with kids show that students get these conceptions from their families, everyday experiences and their observations.
