Anne Hafina, Lutfi Nur, Nandang Rusmana

Abstract


This study was conducted to determine the contribution of the aquatic learning approach to the development of the basic attitude ability in early childhood. This study used one group pretest-posttest design with 8 students aged 5-6 years as participants. The instruments used in this study were structured observations and field notes reflecting the children’ basic attitudes, including respecting rules, sharing equipment, fearless, listening to instructions, and the desire to participate. The data analysis technique used was paired sample t-test. The results showed that the children basic attitude ability increased significantly with t-value 7.514. However, the research with a larger number of participants is needed to find out the impact in general.
