Abstract
This research aimed to find out whether there were differences in the climates of kindergartens in Padang. Specifically, this research would see whether there were differences in perceptions among the kindergartens' climate experienced (the actual climate) and the climate of the kindergartens that were desired by teachers (preferred climate). The research samples were 50 kindergartens' teachers representing 305 kindergartens in Padang. To obtain the data, this research used the school climate measurement tool adapted from the School Level Environment Scale (SLEQ) which was originally developed by Fisher. The results generally indicated that no significant differences between the actual climate (3.07) and preferred climate (3.25) by the teachers. However, on the scale of participation in decision making (2.80 : 3.49), and physical comfort (2.86 : 3.53), the differences were higher compared to other scales. It was hoped that the principal of kindergartens in the city of Padang would minimize the differences by more involving kindergarten teachers in the decision-making processes and increasing the convenience and more adequate of managing infrastructure of kindergarten.
