Obtained data have been analyzed by using Mann Whitney U, Pearson Moments Corelation Coefficient According to the results of the research, it has been observed that % 70 of the kindergarten students have avoidance attachment with regard to TOBAH attachment scale and it is the biggest group. In addition, it has been observed that % 21 of children have secure attachment and % 9 of children have negative attachment. When we look at the rates of secure, avoidance and negative attachment, it has been determined that % 79 of children are insecure and % 21 of them are secure. TOBAH attachment scale grades do not differ according to genders of kindergarten students, their mothers' working conditions, people who look after them at 0-1 age.
