A child’s play is the meaning of its life in preschool age. It was his refuge from fears, field of battles, the polygon of game, achievements and successes, soothing and dreams. There come to the fore desires, aspirations, feelings, thoughts and needs of the child for active action in the environment in which it lives. The game satisfies the biological and psychological needs of children and contributes to their mental, emotional, social and moral development. Different roles in the games, although the product of a child’s fantasy, allow the child to gain personal experience of good and bad, about what is positive and what is not in behavior. Games are an important form of entertainment for children and adults, through which children organize independently and they have special educational significance. They are a powerful tool for education because through games children acquire knowledge, enrich their experience, and develop skills and habits. The goal of our research is to investigate how the game is implemented in the educational work of preschool institutions, and at the same time to determine which of the traditional games are used in kindergartens, and how modern games enable and assist the process of coming to self-knowledge.
