The purpose of this study was to look into the influence of the junior florist training course on spatial perception ability and hand dexterity of low-income children at a community child center. For this purpose, 46 elementary school children who were divided into two groups attended total 13 sessions of program from June 2 to August 30 in 2017. In case of spatial perception ability, the control group did show any change (p=.251), whereas the experimental group showed a significant progress (p=.001). In case of hand dexterity, the control group showed a significant change at a major hand (p=.018), whereas the experimental group showed a significant change at both a major hand (p=.009) and a non-major hand (p=.001). Looking into the differences on gender, both male participants (p=.008) and female participants (p=.040) showed a significant change in spatial perception ability, and in case of promptness, there was a significant change in male participants’ major hand (p=.017), and female participants’ major hand (p=.044) and non-major hand (p=.037). In the comparison between low grade children and high grade children, the lower graders showed significant changes in their spatial perception ability (p=.001) and hand dexterity in a non-major hand (p=.012), whereas high graders showed a significant change in hand dexterity in a non-major hand (p=.042). In spatial perception ability, there was a more significant change in low graders than high graders, and in male children than female children.
