Our study on the problem of the senior preschoolers’ social activity formation showed that methodological and theoretical foundations for solving and improving this problem have now been developed.

The social activity of senior preschoolers can be considered a realized desire of children to participate in socially significant activities, in the space of a preschool educational institution, with the goal to solve social problems interesting for them while actively interacting with adults, peers and younger children.

The analysis revealed that senior preschoolers’ social interaction functions as a complex integral education with a number of interconnected components. The study proved that the development of social activity of senior preschool children, within the educational space of the kindergarten, is successful in the staged construction of this process. The latter ensures the development of the main components of social activity and involves the gradual involvement of preschoolers in socially oriented activities with the opportunity to show independence, initiative and creativity.

During the course of our research, we found out that social activity in senior preschool age has its own characteristics reflected in the uneven mastery of the fundamentals of social interaction. This is manifested in the gap between the ideas of senior preschoolers about social activity and its real manifestation in behavior; between the desire of children to participate in socially significant activities and the ability to bring the matter to fruition.
