This study aimed to verify the effectiveness of the smoking prevention program for young children in middle and long term and to evaluate the program satisfaction of early childhood teachers. The subjects of this study were 1,067 children aged 3-5 years old who were at the childhood education institutions and 54 teachers who operated the program. The results revealed that the knowledge of prevention, attitude, and practical ability of the children improved through the pilot application of the smoking prevention program. Second, the teachers' overall satisfaction with the program was high, and the teachers suggested that teacher education program development, connection with families and differentiation of activities according to ages need improvement. These results demonstrated the effectiveness of the smoking prevention program for young children. The study is meaningful in that it provides the implications for improvement and expansion of the smoking prevention program for young children.
