Required information was gathered through library documents (Iran's Basic Education Transformation Document, 2011; National Curriculum of Iran, Mapping 2010; Presidium Constitutions and Guidebook for Preschool Programs and Activities, 2013), Semi-Interview Organized with key educators, experts and keypads, as well as a search on the World Wide Web and the websites of the Ministry of Education of the countries studied.
Results: The results showed that all countries studied developed a comprehensive curriculum for pre-school physical education. They explained the elements of curriculum in their physical education curriculum.
