Early childhood education forms the foundation for the child's future formal, informal and even non- formal learning. It is here that basic knowledge is given to the child and foundation for the economically productive and life satisfying is given. This was achieved with reason to provide adequate and effective learning resources to both the pre-school teachers and pre- school children with a view to improve in their everyday participation and performance in their learning activities. The quality and quantity of instructional resources available in the preschools determine the quality of education that children acquire. The study will strive to give a survey on the impact of learning resources on the performance of pre- school children Tindiret Zone. The study was guided by research questions that were set to establish the impact of instructional resources on the performance of pre- school children in their instructional process. The target population was education officials in the zone, all the pre- schools in Tindiret Zone, Nandi south district while the sample will comprise of fourteen randomly selected preschools, 14 teachers, 20 children and 10 parents. The study selected ex-post design facto design. There were questionnaires for education officials and teachers, an interview schedule for the parents and a checklist for the children, which were used to collect data. The study found out that schools in the zone have learning resources while others have no leaning resources. The study also found out that different children perform differently in their instructional activities because of varied provision of learning resources both at home and while at school. The study discovered that all respondents would co-operate in order to make the study a success.
