ABSTRACT:  The study focus mainly on the pre-school children and their most common manifested play pattern namely: onlooker play which involves watching others play, without participating onself. Solitary play, which means playing alone, independently, without any signs of wanting to join the other children playing. Parallel play, playing alongside with other children, with similar materials, and in some common activity, but without any interaction. Associative play, is playing in group that is organized, with division of labor, and with coordination and cooperation in pursuits of the common goal. For the researcher to have a chance to look into the relationship among the variables considered, the study utilized the observation survey method.
