Children’s self-regulation is built from environmental support. This research is motivated by the lack of teacher knowledge in designing smart pedagogy as a learning strategy. This affects the ability of self-regulation in children who are still low in daycare, this is known as preliminary information for researchers with the results of discussions with parents on daycare about the child’s ability to control themselves and organize themselves in the scope of simple daily tasks. Then the researchers also obtained observations through documents that showed the teacher also did not design learning strategies that were good enough to improve the ability of self-regulation in the design of routine activities on the daily activity sheet. Even gardening is limited to playing in the yard and there are no specific learning goals. Some daycare centers make mini-gardens, but are not designed as daily programs that can be integrated with self-management skills. The stages of the implementation of the Mini Garden provide rules and allow children to explore and practice self-regulation. The function of Mini Garden is not only as a vacant lot in daycare. This study was designed on an action research model, which was created by testing Cycle 1 and Cycle 2 to find out whether the Mini Garden that has been created makes self-regulation in 30 children increase, the instrument used in this study is through observation and data checklist using self-indicators -regulation children aged 5-6 years. The indicators used are derived from the development of aspects of self-regulation, namely attention regulation, emotion regulation, and behavior regulation, which are used in the stages of mini garden activities and visualized through poster regulations for mini garden activities. The results showed that in the second cycle there was an increase in children’s self-regulation ability to 84.3%, which was previously only 42.9%.
