The aim of this study is to examine the achievements that are included in the MEB 2013 Pre-School Education Program in terms of 21st century skills and to determine the level of reference skills. Content analysis method, one of the qualitative research methods, was used in the research. As a result of the research, it has been observed that the gains in the preschool program are mostly related to skills such as critical thinking, creativity, problem solving, communication, responsibility and awareness of different cultural characteristics. When the development areas are analyzed, it is seen that the gains related to these skills are mostly included in the field of social emotional development, followed by the language development field and the cognitive development field respectively. In addition, while these skills are very rare in the field of self-care skills, it has been determined that there are no encountered in the field of motor development. Technology and media literacy gains, which have become very important today and highlighted in 21st century skills, have not been observed. Some suggestions were made in line with the results obtained.
