Abstract: This article analyses the current situation of preschool English Foreign Language (EFL) education in the Region of Murcia from three critical perspectives: teachers, teaching approaches and textbooks. A total sample of 106 preschools throughout the region completed research questionnaires. The results of the data analysis show that while preschool English teaching in the Region is now well established, there are still certain areas which should be highlighted for improvement. Specific issues in need of further attention include the strengthening of teacher training for this age range and the extensive use of textbooks written by British rather than local publishers.
