The current study aims to perform the adaptation of the Encouragement of Academic Skills of Young Children (EASYC) Scale into Turkish. The study group was determined by means of the convenience sampling technique. A total of 124 students aged at 48-84 months were included in the sampling of the study. The data collection tools of the study are the Turkish Version of Encouragement of Academic Skills of Young Children Scale (ÇEABD) and the Home Literacy Activities Questionnaire used for criterion validity. In the analysis of the data, explanatory and confirmatory factor analyses, Pearson correlation analysis, descriptive analysis, item total correlation, and internal consistency coefficient calculation were used. As a result of the study, the ÇEABD was proved to be valid and reliable scale in the Turkish sampling. The mean scores taken by the children in the sampling from the reading and math dimensions of ÇEABD and their total mean score were found to be at the medium level. Thus, it can be argued that the parents of the children in the sampling moderately encourage them in activities related to letters and words, comprehension, formal math activities, informal math activities and activities related to games/toys sub-dimensions.
