The study was conducted to examine the effect the 60-72 months of preschool children's motor skills have on their self-care skills. This is an analytical and sectional type of research. This study was conducted with aged 60-72 months of 126 preschool children between 15 March and 30 May 2019. The data were collected using the Self-Care Skills Scale-Teacher Form for Preschool Children (36-72 months) and the Lincoln Oseretsky Motor Development Test. It was found in the study that the preschool children's motor and self-care skills were affected by the duration of stay in kindergarten. In addition, there was a positive statistically significant relationship between the children's motor skills and self-care skills and the subscales (p < .05). It was seen that as the motor skills of the children increased, their self-care skills also increased.
