The purpose of this study was to develop a Pre-service Teacher Education Program to enhance children's creativity and to examine the effectiveness of the program. The participants of this study were 87 pre-service teachers in Seoul, Kyungggi-do, and Chungcheong-do, Korea. Forty-eight pre-service teachers were assigned to the control group and thirty-nine pre-service teachers were assigned to the experimental group. Pre-service teachers in the experimental group participated in this program for 12 sessions over the course of 12 weeks. The main purpose of this program is to arouse pre-service teachers’ awareness of their own creative abilities and introducing basic concepts of creativity and how to nurture creativity within the classroom setting. MANCOVA, ANCOVA and canonical discriminant analyses were performed for the purposes of data analyses. A significant difference was found between those receiving this program and those receiving the control treatment on a creative thinking test and creative problem solving tasks which were given to the subjects following the program. The findings obtained indicated that the program was successful in developing pre-service teachers’ creative thinking and in helping them to learn the skills which are related to creative thinking and how to nurture greater levels of creativity in the classroom.
