- Regulation of Minister of Education and Culture, Republic of Indonesia, Number 30 of 2017 concerning Family Involvement in Education Unit explains that family has a strategic role in supporting the delivery of education to achieve national education goals, and the involvement of families in the education management requires synergy between education units, families and communities. This is in line with the thought of Ki Hajar Dewantoro, a popular educational activist, who stated that education is a shared responsibility between education units, families and communities known as the tri pusat pendidikan. The results of the preliminary study indicated that the early childhood education unit (ECCE units) had already engaged in family involvement, but its implementation was still not yet maximal, including: 1) the parents-and-teacher meetings were only carried out at the time of the distribution of children’s development reports 2). The implementation of parent classes was still lacking in media and methods; and did not involve parents as resource persons, 3) Inspirational classes did not involve parents as resource persons; and methods were not varied, 4) Class performances were limited to the performance of children; and did not involve parents. To answer the above problems, the Center for Development of Early Childhood Education and Community Education, West Java, Indonesia, developed Family Involvement in Implementation Education in Early Childhood Education Units in Instilling Nationalism Value, to encourage ECCE units to seek parents involvement in various activities that support the educational process and embedding nationalism in students. It is an innovative pattern that reflects the synergy between the school, parents and the community. The contents of it include a description of the management of the family engagement program, and the optimization of family involvement to increase the awareness, role and ability of parents in supporting education and embedding children’s nationalism. It is divided into 3 major stages, namely the stages of design, action, and the results stage for school-and-parents meetings, parent classes, inspirational classes, and classroom performances. Family Involvement in Implementation Education in Early Childhood Education Units in Instilling Nationalism Value aims to: 1) Increase the nationalism value of students, 2) increase the love of Indonesian culture, 3) Reduce individualistic attitudes, consumerism, in some communities, 4) Increase parents participation in teacher meetings, 4) Provide strengthening for students in growing the character and values of nationalism, 5) Increase parents knowledge, attitudes and skills in family education. The method used research and development method, through the collection, processing, analysis, and presentation of data carried out systematically and objectively accompanied by activities to develop a product to solve the problems faced. The method is considered suitable bearing in mind the purpose of developing the ECCE and community education models is not intended to find theories, but rather to produce or develop a product that can be used as an input for policy making, as well as a formula for improving the quality of education services, in this case family education services. This has been tested in 4 locations, Wiyata Bhakti Play Group in Purwakarta, POS PAUD Dewi Pramanik in Bandung Municipality, Golden Age Kindergarten in Subang, and Public Kindergarden in Cimahi Municipality. The products include model scripts, dictates (patriotism, diversity, nationality), and media (posters, flipcharts, discussion cards). The achievement of the family engagement program in ECCE units is supposed to have a positive impact on students by having the character of nationalism.
