The article presents the full and short versions of the new technique "Scale of personal maturity of the child", designed to assess the personality development of children aged 2 to 7 years. Full version of the questionnaire consists of 42 items; short version consists of 13 items. A survey of 614 children with typical development aged from 24 months to 83 months, revealed a high internal consistency of the items full and short versions of the questionnaire with Cronbach's alpha values of 0.965 and 0.953 respectively. Factor analysis of the data showed that single-factor (holistic) model of personality structure is the best.
