Abstract
The research aims to provide an overview of the role of the church in the central highlands of Papua in giving attention to early childhood education for children to attend school. This research also intends to give understanding to parents about parenting and the community in providing proper education to children at the early age. The result revealed that parents assume that the children who attended school in the early childhood education will reduce their time working in the field and many childhood education teachers come from the other ethnic communities, then the use of Indonesian language would be difficult for children to understand because at home parents used the language of the local tribe. Second, the general community in Papua is abiding society on religion and respect for church leaders. Their role is not only in church services but also sensitise the public about the importance of education and parenting.
