The aim of this research is to make early childhood teachers and preservice teachers nominate gifted children as candidates in their classrooms. For this aim, Gifted Children Nomination Training Programme (ÜYÇAGEP) was developed and its effectiveness was evaluated. The research was planned with a quasiexperimental design with pretest-posttest control groups. It was conducted with 20 childhood teachers and 20 preservice teachers in Edirne selected by criteria sampling method. The effectiveness of ÜYÇAGEP was evaluated with two methods. First method was conducted by a Gifted Children Perception Scale (ÜYÇALÖ) as pretest, posttest and follow-up test. Second method was conducted by asking 40 participants to nominate children whom they think are gifted. In order to measure intelligence, creativity and motivation levels of the 54 children nominated by 40 participants; Stanford Binet Intelligence Scales, Evaluation of Potential Creativity Test (EPoC), and Motivational Scale for the Preschool Children tests were utilized. Data were analyzed by Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test, Mann-Whitney U Test and Friedman Test. As a result, a significant difference was found in results achieved from ÜYÇALO and its subbranches between participants who had or hadn't received ÜYÇAGEP. Moreover, between the participants a significant difference was observed in candidate children's Stanford Binet Intelligence Scales results. But, between the participants no major difference in scores could be observed from the EPoC results of the candidate children. In a similar manner, between the candidate children nominated by participants no significant difference was observed in test scores of Motivational Scale for the Preschool Children test.
