- The role of women as the primary source of the ECE workforce has long been debated in the academic arena. In Indonesia, female ECE teachers are always preferred due to the maternalist perceptions that lead to under-appreciation of their labours. Based on historical data and ethnographic research, this article aims at demonstrating how caring has gone through a multiple process of re-interpretations that produced multiple meanings. These interpretations affect teachers’ in the field as much as it affects the children. However, teachers are able to show their active roles and negotiated performativity, although their actions cannot exclusively exclude from the religious, colonial, social, political settings.
