ABSTRACT The objectives of the study are 1) to identify the types of traditional educative game tools (traditional APE) used in Early Child Education and Play Groups, 2) to find out the eligibility of the traditional APE found, and 3) to know the need of traditional APEbased 3P (Provision, Protection and Participation) in Early Child Education (PAUD) and Play Groups (KB) in Semarang. The approach of the study was qualitative descriptive. The study was conducted in five Early Child Education and Play Groups in Semarang, and the sample was taken by using purposive sampling. The results of the study show that 1) Traditional educative game tools found in Early Child Education and Play groups are still very limited in number and varieties; they are only three dakons; 2) The dakons as education games found are typically much more to introduce the traditional games without considering provision, protection, and participation aspects; and 3) Because the number of traditional educative game tools is very limited, so it is necessary to produce traditional educative game tools-based 3P (Provision, Protection, and Participation) both to introduce traditional games and to create child-friendly learning in Early Child Education and Play Groups.
