The methodology addressed in this research is emphasized in a qualitative approach, allowing an approximation of the context through which the child is constructing the imaginary in the different social spaces in which these are immersed. Taking into account the potentialities of the target population, three types of instruments were used: GO observation guide, a semi-structured interview ES and the TM doll technique. These data were analyzed, graphed and systematized through the Atlas Ti program, showing a sequence of the findings and carrying out a hermeneutic analysis of the data, yielding real data that affect the construction of the cultural imaginary from the discourse of its interlocutors. The analysis allowed to determine the moments, spaces and discourses that affect the construction of this imaginary about cultural diversity from verbal interactions in children from 0 to 5 years of age, and how this construction is done before the arrival of the child to formal education.
