The purpose of this research was to investigate the strengths and weaknesses of selected preschool physical education programs in Central North Carolina and to analyze the available teaching resources for preschool physical education teachers who teach children who are developmental delayed. Data were gathered by using a revised version of the Evaluation of K-12 Physical Education Programs: A Self-Study Approach. The Likert-type scale questionnaire survey was administered to elementary physical education teachers and the preschool staff. The results of the study revealed the areas in preschool physical education programs that needed improvement and noted the areas of priority. The research findings concluded that the selected preschool physical education programs lacked the necessary resources for effective physical education activities and found that these resources are needed for children with disabilities to develop appropriately throughout their lifespan.
