In Turkey, the preschoolers are being schooled under the guidelines of MONE (Ministry of National Education) Preschool Program for 36-72 Months Old Children (2006). The aim of this research is to investigate how children's rights are involved in this program. In this qualitative research based on document analysis, program book and Teacher Guide were analyzed using content analysis method. Frequency of children right categories (survival, development, protection, participation) in each sentence is coded and presented in tables and graphics. Findings indicate that development and participation rights take part in the program mostly and the large part of development rights is right to a quality public education. Protection rights are merely mentioned. Although there are a few findings that conflict with the Convention on the Rights of the Child, it is clear that the program is not based on the convention. Restructuring is needed for upbringing children with human right culture. (Contains 9 tables.)
