Abstract
This study was conducted to explore how children at early age experience literacy activities with their parents at home. It is also interesting to see how early childhood literacy experiences are related to family socio-economic status (SES) as many studies found that SES is one of the significance factors that affects family literacy activities. The data was gathered through interviews involving 26 participants using yes/no questions and open-ended questions categorized into four indicators as adapted from the theory of early literacy experiences of Teale and Sulzby (1986) and Sénéchal (2012). It is reported that all the families participated in this study variously provide home literacy opportunities for their children. In terms of read aloud, formal reading, and formal writing activities, families with mid-income provide more assistances to their children compared to families with low and high income. However, in terms of parents’ literacy activities, all parents with high income come first.
