The purpose of this research is to know the influence of learning method and cognitive style to physical science understanding. This research was conducted in Adhyaksa XXVI kindergarten and TK Pertiwi 1 academic year 2017/2018, using 2 x 2 factorial design experiment method involving 120 samples. The data analysis techniques use two ANAVA and Tukey Test. The results showed that: 1) The understanding of physical science of children taught through discovery learning method is higher than that of children taught by project base learning method = 49,77 >  = 3,96,2) There is interaction effect between method of discovery learning and method of project base learning and cognitive style toward the understanding of physical science, it is based on value  = 105,83 >  = 3,96,3) Understanding of physical science child cognitive field independent field given discovery learning method more higher than the children given the method of project base learning = 17.32>  = 2.95, 4) Understanding the physical science of children who have cognitive style field dependent given discovery learning method is lower than in children given the method of project base learning  = -1.24 <  = 2.9.
