It is highly important to choose the appropriate study methods that involve children who are in their early childhood period so that the genuine thoughts of children can be acquired and the study can successfully be completed. In order to understand children’s perspective which is different from adult point of view, proper communication means, that will enable child participation in research, should be found. With United Nations Child Rights Agreement, consciousness has developed rapidly, on hearing children and understanding their point of view. This consciousness based on benefiting from children’s opinions, by asking about every issue they are concerned with, and by treating them ethically during the research process, is accepted by most of the present research in different areas as a requirement. However, since there is a preconception that children in early childhood period usually do not give the right information, researchers keep away from early childhood studies. In this context, this study tries to introduce the development process of early childhood studies, the features of the research process and the methods that enable children’s participation in research; hence, this study can contribute to research, based on the participation of children in early childhood, to become widespread. As a result of the assessment, the multiple methods, which combine verbal and visual studies, open different expression channels for children. This is why this approach should be adopted in research.
