Fifty six (56) preschool teachers and principals were taken as sample of the study by applying purposive sampling technique. Interview, focus group discussion (FGD) and observation checklist were used to get data from the target population. The result of the study shows that the common method of learning - teaching practiced in the classroom situation was teacher-centered which is inappropriate at the preschool level. The result of the findings indicates lack of professional experts and training in the area, lack of resource and other related facilities stuck them from implementation of appropriate teaching method in preschool. Finally, based on the findings and discussions some helpful implications have been provided. As inferred from the result of the study teachers in selected preschool were not implementing the common teaching learning method which needed in preschool - teaching learning due to different factors such as, overcrowded classes with a single teacher, lack of materials and facilities, lack of classrooms and lack of qualified teachers. Therefore West Shewa Zonal Educational Office, Woreda and other non-governmental organization must pay their attention to the preschool students
