The aim of this research is to describe the education model on socio-cultural diversity applied in early childhood education. This research uses the naturalistic qualitative approach and adopts Spradley’s data analysis technique. The data of this research were obtained from the school foundation, headmaster, teachers, students, and parents in the early childhood education Golden Kids School, Surakarta. The data collection techniques used in this study are an in-depth interview, participative observation, and document analysis.
