ABSTRACT
This comparative study was carried out between the government and private kindergarten (KG) sectors in Kuwait. The aim of this study is to develop government KGs in light of parents' needs by discovering their preference between the two sectors and the reasons behind their choice in terms of their satisfaction with different issues in the KG system. Additionally, teachers' views will be pointed out to examine issues related to parents' choice. The literature review assisted this study in identifying official evidence and statistics from the Kuwait Ministry of Education. A mixed approach was used, via a questionnaire, to collect data from parents and teachers in order to fulfill the research objectives. The results of the analysis suggest merits and demerits of both sectors in light of parents' satisfaction and teachers' views.
