Children born in 2010 until now are called Generation Alpha. Generation Alpha is amidst advanced information technology at its golden age. They are familiar with the technology and internet world from an early age and also known as the digital native. Children, who are studying in playgroups, kindergartens, and elementary schools today, are Generation Alpha, who closes to Information Technology (IT). They can access and absorb various information. In addition to school, parents also play a role in the social-emotional development of children. Therefore, a learning model that can optimize the social-emotional abilities of children is needed. The social problems of children today are quite concerning. We can see it from various media that recently showed the amount of violence and bullying that both the perpetrators and victims are children. Hence, we need to do preventive actions for children from an early age. The increase of technology and information affects the heavy information which is easily accessed by children without being filtered. Children made it as a model and imitated it. Schools today still focus on cognitive development and have a minimal application of social development. While at home, parents have limitations. Schools need a model of social-emotional development intervention that involves collaboration with parents. This study aimed to evaluate the application of social-emotional learning models by involving parents. The alternative exerted to achieve this goal was to develop a learning model that can be used to teach social-emotional skills in early childhood. It was done by conducting Research and Development which includes following activities: (1) research and gather information, including reading literature, observing the class, and preparing a report on the development needs, (2) plan the prototype of the developed component, (3) develop the initial prototype; (4) conduct limited trials, (5) revise, (6) conduct results trials, (7) conduct product revisions, (8) conduct field trials operationally, (9) conduct final revisions to the model, and (10) spread to various parties. Based on the results of the evaluations conducted at eight ECE institutions located in eight sub-districts in East Jakarta, the average success rate of the program was 85.87%. Based on the data above, it can be concluded that the program can be well and successfully implemented.
