AbstractThis survey research was designed to notice the impact of age and teaching experience of preschool teachers on their perceptions of Peter Senge’s learning organization concept of five disciplines. The questionnaire was based on Gravin’s tool kit (2008) that was originally being designed for assessing the working of any learning organization. Out of 350 respondents from 10 branches of a private school in Lahore, 300 pre-school teachers had responded back. When analyzed individually, the effect of age and experience about awareness of five disciplines showed a varied response in results but an understanding about Senge’s five disciplines was there in the responses of sample teachers. Data findings revealed that while a comprehensive understanding about all the five disciplines of Peter Senge’s model was not up to the mark, some evidence about their understanding was still commendable because the concept is still emerging in context of Pakistan.
