Abstract

Early childhood education should be prepared in a planned and guided manner as a basis for optimizing their language development, including second language namely English. The paper aims to seek out the perceptions of parents about learning English at early childhood education (ECE) institutions and the urgency for children in Kota Bertuah. This research was involving six parents who enrolled their children in ECE institutions with an English program. Data collect used an open interview instrument. Analysis began with making transcripts of the interview, then by coding to find core and sub-core on the perception and urgency of learning English for young children. Furthermore, the urgency of English in early childhood in Kota Bertuah is that language is easier to introduce to children during their golden years. Furthermore, the findings obtained are the urgency of learning English for early childhood, namely providing a school environment that can stimulate children's sensitivity to hearing and speaking using English vocabulary, even though they are not directly fluent in communicating like native speakers. The implications of the research results are the existence of a special English language learning model or guide that is in accordance with the characteristics and development of early childhood.
