This study investigated pre-school teachers’ use of resource materials in teaching. A descriptive-survey design was used to collect data from 60 pre-school teachers selected by systematic sampling technique. An observational schedule titled Resources Utilization Schedule (R U S) was used to observe and record teaching in the pre-school classes. Data were analyzed using mean, mean rank, chi-square and t-test statistics. Findings revealed the non-availability of resource materials in teaching. Also, the few materials available were not sufficiently utilized. Pre-school teachers’ utilization of resource materials was found to depend on qualification, experience, and gender but independent of school type.
