The representation of space supposes the integration of space and time, as sources of knowledge, which depend on the cultural context . From this, what happens in school for children young (04-05 years old) and the official curriculum? What elements could be inserted and thought for cartography in childhood? These issues are guided by the hypothesis constructed - with based on the authors -: if the spatial thought starts in childhood within social groups, the genesis of geography and cartography is in early childhood education, whether formal or not. Thus, the main theme of this research is the School Cartography in Early Childhood Education.
