This study aims to determine the analysis of collaboration between teachers and parents in science education during the covid-19 pandemic for early childhood education and to analyze the role of elementary school teachers in teaching science to early childhood online. The method used is a sample survey of 48 parents of students in measuring the role of teachers and parents. Data analysis uses quantitative analysis which emphasizes the influence of the role of teachers and parents on the success of learning science in early childhood schools. The results showed that there was an influence of the role of teachers and parents on the success of early childhood education students in teaching science. Understanding of scientific concepts that are still rigid by following reference books, limitations of tools, materials, and time, as well as the application of scientific concepts that do not refer to the early childhood environment. Based on the results of the study, it can be concluded that the collaboration of teachers and parents needs to be improved in accordance with the purpose of teaching science to early childhood to improve online learning.
