Environmental literacy skills are also very important characters that should be learned by people since their early age. It is believed that some knowledge if learned by people since they are in early ages, the knowledge can become habit and it will stay in the people mind and heart for a long time. The current study investigates some perceptions perceived by early childhood education teachers in teaching environmental education in this pandemic situation. The study employed 15 early childhood teachers as the samples with the semi-structured interviews as the research instrument. The data collection period took four (4) months in 2020. Content analysis was employed to analyze the data in the current study. The obtained data was validated by the members of the faculty. Findings from the study showed that early childhood teachers have already used some teaching strategies to help their early students to be environmental literacy. The teaching strategies used by the teachers varies from one to another. The study implied that even though early students have to learn at home but their early education teachers can still teach them to maintain and preserve their environmental.
