over 27 million people living below the poverty line, up to half the population is estimated vulnerable to poverty (UNICEF, 2010; World Bank, 2010) Inequality and regional disparities are a fundamental feature of poverty in the country The large disparity in socio-economics is also reflected in the wide variation in educational outcomes. Children from the poorer villages start school later, complete fewer years of schooling and have higher drop out and repetition rates (World Bank, 2006)

ECED center could encourage more reading habit at home, providing access to books, give opportunity for parent to borrow book from the center, as well as work together with local library to support this access. increase parent‘s involvement in ECED program, teaching caregiver practices that could support attachment and early stimulation at home such as storytelling. In order to increase parent’s literacy level the center should consider linking with adult education program in the community, such as Kejar Paket A program.
