Creativity in Preschoolers, a Challenge of the Contemporary Education

The creative person can develop broadly and accurately in the various performance scenarios because he has the mental acuity to put into practice his skills and competences in solving problems of life and its context. The research addresses the development of creativity in the five-year-old children of Preschool Education. It responds to a call from the Ministry of Education of Peru aimed at making proposals to improve the pedagogical practice from the Master's Program in Education. Methodologically, it is based on the qualitative educational approach. The sample was intentional and selected through criterion sampling. We used methods, techniques and instruments that showed the level of development of creativity in preschool, as seen in the indicators: fluency, originality and motivation, and the way of conducting the teaching-learning process by teachers. The epistemological foundations and the scientific reflections contrasted with the practical results allowed to contribute as essential conclusion, a didactic strategy that contributed to the development of the creative capacity in the children of the Preschool Education in Puno (Peru).
