Abstract
This study aims to explore the role of parents and community to strengthening children literacy. This study uses participatory action research (PAR) in applying qualitative data collection using interview, observation and document study. This study was conducted in Landak and Manggarai Barat, part of Wahana Visi Indonesia area program. The main informant of the study were tutors, parents, and village government officer. The result of the study describe that the role of parents assists children literacy through assisting children creating reading corner and by interaction with children after storytelling or reading a book. The support of community, including the availability of reading camp can increase parents’ awareness of children literacy. The inhibiting factors of strengthening support children literacy is when parents do not have enough time to support the children and parents have a low literacy competency to assist children. It seems that, when children have access to early childhood education, it may affect parent’s self-efficacy towards their children literacy. Interestingly, parents also have a more positive behavior to be more patient as they know about children development stages during assisting children literacy.
