The study employed 23 preschool teachers as the samples having semi-structured interviews as the research instrument. The data collection period took four (4) months. Content analysis was employed to analyze the data in the current study. The obtained data was validated by the members of the faculty. Findings from the study showed that the learning strategies were implemented by the preschoolers in the course of their learning.
