The aim of this study was to determine the views, achievements and actions of preschool teachers regarding the workshop on movement education. In this study qualitative research design and action research approach were used. The participants comprised 10 voluntary female preschool teachers working in the Central district of Bolu province. In order to collect data, the drawings of the participants, open-ended questions and focus group interviews were used. Content analysis technique was used on the analysis of data obtained in the study. According to the findings, the preschool teachers thought that the attendance of workshop improved self-development. Teachers stated that workshop caused the improvement of their knowledge, skills and self-confidence about movement education and help them to overcome the problems they experienced with teaching this subject. However, they determined that with the use of more gross muscle activity in class and outdoor space (garden), they could design a variety of activities and materials, and stated that in this way the students would also become more active individuals. Another important effect of the workshop on the teachers was the encouragement of the teachers to collaborate between the members of their own professional group in the creation of the activities. Thus, this kind of workshops should be seen as important for preschool teachers and should become prevalent in their practice.
