Indonesia is an archipelago country consisting of 17,504 lands spread in 34 provinces. One of them is West Nusa Tenggara Province. In addition, Indonesia is also a country rich in traditional games because Indonesia has more than 1,340 ethnic groups. If it is assumed that one ethnic group only has two traditional games, then in Indonesia there will be around 2,680 types of traditional games. Traditional games are games that develop from generation to generation and usually contain elements of education that can stimulate aspects of child development such as motoric skill, cognitive ability, language, social-emotional, creativity and character. This article will describe the perceptions of kindergarten teachers about the use of traditional games in the learning process in kindergarten. The research method uses descriptive qualitative with interview techniques. The research subjects were 100 kindergarten teachers in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) Province. Research time July - October 2018. The results of the study show that the use of traditional games in learning in kindergarten is only enriching and is not optimal and needs to be encouraged so that Indonesian traditional games, especially in NTB can be preserved and empowered to stimulate aspects of child development.
