    Abstract

    The purpose of this study was to measure parental involvement in preschool education. Five aspects of involvement based on Epstein's model have been investigated. Quantitative data was collected from 294 parents whose children attended 6 selected private kindergartens in Curug district, Tangerang, Indonesia. The findings indicated that parental involvement was at low level. The result of One Way Anova analysis showed significant mean differences in parental involvement according to types of kindergarten. This study implies that principals need to have open policy and support parental involvement, arrange more structured parental involvement program, provide teachers' training and programs that can improve parents' SES through preschool education. It is recommended that the government provides guidelines in implementing parental involvement program, provides fund to support preschool finance and encourage employers to give time for mothers to attend school activities.
