Abstract
Early childhood is a sensitive period to obtain various kinds of stimuli, one of which stimuli that need to be stimulated is language. The focus of this research is foreign languages because foreign languages mastered will have an impact on the future life, one of which is in the career field. This was seen at the time of the co-19 epidemic that the area of interest by workers, employees, and employees who were laid off in the pre-employment system was English. Therefore, English can be introduced to early childhood to prepare children to face the globalization of the world, survive in the world by facing increasingly high competition, and prepare children to lead the world. Case studies are research methods conducted by researchers because there is one school in Cimahi City that applies English learning through the use of information and communication technology media by introducing vocabulary and simple conversations through fun activities. Data collection techniques used were the observation of one of the English language learning programs, school interviews, and learning documentation analysed through thematic data analysis. The results of research that have been categorized into themes show that ICT-based learning media as an innovation in introducing English and internet networks that are used by teachers, so it can be concluded that ICT media and internet networks used can help teachers in introducing English and teachers can innovate and creative in creating an atmosphere of learning.
