In Indonesia, the prevalence of inappropriate childcare remains relatively high. Data from the Indonesian Early Childhood Report (2021) indicating 4 out of 10 early childhood children experience inadequate childcare. Meanwhile, from 0–3 years old, the brain grows rapidly to form strong connection, thus decent childcare is important during this period. Responsive parenting (eg. parents’ response to the child’s needs) and early learning (eg. learning materials and facilities) are two important domains that could support children’s developmental needs. Unfortunately, in Indonesia there are still not enough research have been done to explore decent parenting. This quantitative study investigates responsive parenting practices and early learning implementation for children aged 0-3 years in three Indonesian cities: DKI Jakarta, Pandeglang, and Kupang. Data collected from 1200 parents from February to March 2023, assessed by the modified of Infant-Toddler Home Observation for Measurement of The Environment (Infant-Toddler HOME) instrument, researcher adjust questions to fit in Indonesian culture. The Infant-Toddler HOME conducted by Tanoto Research Team. Result shows 85% of participants are able to demonstrate responsive parenting and 82.4% can provide early learning domain. Early learning score found positively correlated with parents’ educational level
