In early childhood education, science learning emphasizes providing direct and real experience. That experience is needed by children in order to promote knowledge about what they see, hear, taste, touch, and smell through its five senses. Ecology-based education is needed by humans and will benefit humanity. The children interaction with environment that support will encourage children to demonstrate their learning activities. However, the authors did not found a discussion about the conceptual model of science learning based on multisensory-ecology in the books and journals. The purpose of this study was to identify a conceptual model of science learning model with based of multisensory-ecology to early childhood. The method used to develop the conceptual model included literature review and interview. The reviews of literature included academic journals, books and proceeding aimed to collect, organize and synthesize existing knowledge. Key informant interview included in-depth interviews conducted to one person's head kidergarten, four kindergarten teachers and five experts which includes an expert on science learning, expert of learning ecology, early childhood education expert, psychologists and children development expert, and instructional design expert. It can be concluded that the science learning based on multisensory-ecology of conceptual model based on multisensory-ecological for early childhood consist five characteristic and five principals of learning science learning model with based of multisensory-ecology. This paper will facilitate a better conceptual understanding of learning science on early childhood education, and thereby contribute, in a small way, to the larger body of discourse surrounding it. This conceptual model will provide a reference point for education and research purposes in early childhood education. This models can be one of the guidelines for kindergarten teachers to develop basic aspects of child development, which includes cognitive, social, emotional and physical simultaneously.
