Science is one of the crucial factors in maturing various aspects of a child’s development. However, some parents think science is problematic and unsuitable for early childhood. It has a limited report on whether parents already have a sufficient understanding of science education for early childhood. This research aims to determine parents’ understanding of science learning for early childhood. The participants were 87 parents. The design of his research is quantitative with online questionnaire instruments. The data were analyzed using the Rasch Model with Winstep Rasch Measurement. The quality of the questions can be seen from the reliability value (0.94), separation (5.81), and outfit and infit values according to standards. Among the 16 questions, only three were identified as biased for teacher and housewife groupings. It means that few questions are in favor of the teacher. Respondents’ performance was good because of the ability to be spread across all the intervals. It was based on the wright map. Another finding is that the average logit person is +1.26, which means a sufficient ability for participants related to early childhood science. All participants can answer questions regarding the criteria of tools and materials and appropriate places for science activities. While the participants least understand the scope of science for children. The conclusion is that parents already have a proper understanding of science learning for early childhood. Parents are theoretically able to support the child. The future study needs to improve the parents’ ability to plan and implement children’s science activities at home.
