Children have creativity. What makes the difference is the degree and form of creativity shown. Environmental stimuli significantly affect the creative thinking skills that are stored in children. This can be achieved by developing project-based learning models to stimulate children's creativity. However, before the development is carried out, the level of teacher needs for the learning model; then, through this research, the analysis of teacher needs will be presented. The method to solve the problem is mixed, combining quantitative and qualitative data collected through questionnaires and interviews, then analyzed using statistical and descriptive techniques. The results of the needs analysis show that teachers stimulating children's creativity are in the “medium” category, teachers preparing learning model planning are in the “medium” category, and teachers are constrained in implementing learning models in the “high” category. Teacher assessment of project results is in the “high” category, and process assessment is in the “low” category. It is concluded that teachers need to develop PjBL models in model books, guidebooks, daily lesson plans, and learning assessments as teacher references that can specifically stimulate children's creativity in kindergarten.
