Character education needs to be developed since children at an early age. Kindergarten as an educational institution should give a priority to develop children’s character. Character education in kindergarten requires an appropriate strategy. The purpose of this research is to describe the character education strategies at kindergarten in Semarang, Indonesia. This research was held by a combination of survey and qualitative methods. Data analysis techniques in this study go through 4 stages, which are data collection, data reduction, data presentation, and conclusion. The results showed that character education at kindergarten in Semarang is aimed to shape attitudes and behaviors based on morals and religion, as well as the prevailing rules. The development of children’s character was generally divided into four global categories; those are attitudes towards themselves, attitudes towards God, attitudes towards other people, and attitudes towards the environment. Children learned the attitudes by doing various activities that are related to the development of the child. The strengthening of character education was done by conditioning the environment. The environment was prepared by the teacher through the arrangement of facilities at school. Teachers cooperated with parents to build children’s knowledge, understanding, and role model for children.
