The subjects of this study were 150 children aged between 3 and 5 who were in kindergartens and in kindergartens in Incheon and Gyeonggi province. Statistical analysis was performed using descriptive statistics, correlation analysis, reliability analysis (Cronbach α), and Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) for each factor. Respectively. The results of this study are as follows. First, the cognitive domain of the early childhood developmental diagnostic tool was composed of 20 items from thinking / language factor and 12 items from creativity. Reliability was highly reliable with a Cronbach alpha coefficient of .947, and a valid factor structure appeared. Second, the affective domain includes 9 factors of sociality factor and 6 items of emotional factor (Cronbach α .929), and third, the body/kinesthetic domain included 5 physical and 5 functional items(Cronbach α .860). In this study, a reliable and valid simple infant behavioral developmental test was developed for teachers and parents to use easily.
