Methodology: The researcher employed a qualitative research approach. The population of the study comprised of ECE teachers. A purposive sampling technique was used, and twelve ECE teachers were interviewed from six different ECE Centers District East and Central, Karachi. Thematic analysis was used to analyze the data.
Results: Findings showed that teachers have very limited knowledge or don’t have an understanding of entrepreneurship. According to them, this skill is related to business, and it can be done only through heavy investment. According to teachers’ opinions, it isn’t easy to teach students about entrepreneurship skills in early childhood education. However, they also stated that students are trained in preschools through multiple exercises. The play method is one of the many strategies that improve social behaviors; collaboration, exploration, projects, problem-solving, decision-making, and innovation.
