The study group consists of 310 children in the 3-5 age group attending kindergartens affiliated to the Ministry of National Education in Konya City Centre in the 2019-2020 academic year. Metacognitive Knowledge Interview Form (McKI) and General Information Form were used to collect the research data. Content validity (expert opinion) and construct validity (confirmative factor analysis) were examined for validity studies of the test. Cronbach's alpha coefficient was calculated for the reliability of the measurements in terms of internal consistency, and Pearson correlation coefficient was calculated for independent inter-observer agreement and test-retest reliability. The analyses revealed that the Metacognitive Knowledge Form (McKI) is a valid and reliable test for 3-5 year old children.
