Abstract

Cultural play is part of the wealth of a nation that can bring benefits to the growth and development of preschool children and thus, it should be preserved. Previous studies from various countries on cultural play have focused on multiple intelligences. However, to date, there are still limited studies that associate cultural play with the seven characteristics of interpersonal intelligence among preschool children, making it difficult for educators to create a reference model for the teaching and learning that support the growth of interpersonal intelligence of preschool children through cultural play. Therefore, this study is aimed to understand cultural play and interpersonal intelligence among preschool children and to discover the efforts and challenges in implementing cultural play amongst the teachers. This study explores preschool children’s interpersonal intelligence prior to the introduction of cultural play, when cultural play was introduced, and after cultural play was introduced, as well as the efforts and challenges in implementing cultural play amongst the teachers. This study adopted a mixed method research design that integrated the collection of qualitative data through observations and interviews and quantitative data through percentages from twenty preschool children and eight preschool teachers in two different preschools. Generally, the study found that cultural play promotes the growth of preschool children’s interpersonal intelligence. Data analysis reveals increased occurrences of interpersonal intelligence among the children in both schools during and after cultural play was introduced, from low to medium and from medium to high level of occurrences. Cultural play was able to promote the growth of interpersonal intelligence because when played in groups, it involved various characteristics of interpersonal intelligence. It was also found that the teachers in this study have carried out cultural play once a week as an effort to integrate it in the classroom. Nonetheless, they faced challenges in integrating cultural play since it has not been included in the pre-school curriculum. Since interpersonal intelligence amongst preschoolers can be promoted through cultural play in this study, it seems reasonable to suggest that cultural play be given its due considerations when teachers plan for enrichment activities. This study also suggests that cultural play should be included in preschool curriculum, as a way to re-live its importance as cultural and national wealth.
