In order to analyze the evolution of game in the history of preschool education laws and regulations in China, the laws and regulations concerning games and preschool education promulgated in the history of Chia from 1903 to now was studied by means of literature review, historical logic and historical analysis, mainly focusing on their social background, political situation, function enlightenment and other aspects. The results showed that during the period of 1903-1922, the new policy of saving the nation through education was put forward and basically copied from Japan. During the kindergarten period from 1922 to 1951, the education of Beiyang warlords worshipped the ancients. After the educational reform in the period of the Republic of China, game had its own position in preschool education. In the early stage of kindergarten development from 1951 to 1966, New China was founded and the pro-Russian ideology was strong. With the help of Russia, games developed more widely in preschool education in China. During the Cultural Revolution period from 1966 to 1976, games were in a backward stage in preschool education. Since 1976, the reform and Opening-up society has developed rapidly. China has introduced many laws and regulations on preschool education. Games completed a transformation in preschool education. These five periods show the evolution of games in China's preschool education laws and regulations from the perspective of time and society. In addition, the analysis results suggested that games helped children's later growth in preschool education in all aspects, and their development was influenced by the ideology, foreign policy, practice and key demands of the ruling party. To sum up, game has undergone a long period of progress in the evolution of preschool education laws and regulations in China. It has a very important positive impact on the later growth of young children so that the society and the government should give adequate support and recognition.
