Playing is a joyful activity and an inherent need for children so that children may learn many
skills in pleasure without any pressure. Trough play, children will be well prepared for their
environment and be ready on their next educational levels. Children’s intelligence is not only
determined by a single score based on an intelligence test which measures the verbal,
linguistic, and logical mathematical competence. Children also have an intelligence which is
called multiple intelligences. This research held in order to apply play model "ASYIK" based
on the multiple intelligences theory in science learning process for early childhood ages
between 5-6 years old at Bekasi (South Bekasi, North Bekasi, East Bekasi and Musika Jaya).
The location of this research was in several early childhood institutions, they are; PAUD An-Nursyihab Tambun, PAUD Al-Ikhlas Mustika Jaya, PAUD El-Kasysyaf Kayuringin Jaya
and PAUD Cempaka Pekayon. This research held in almost 10 months from February until
November 2014. The R&D Method was used for this research. It contains of 3 stages:
method pre-development, method development and method application. This research
concluded that none of the early childhood institution was using ASYIK method, especially
in Bekasi. That's why this method became the newest innovation of science learning process
in the early childhood institution.
