This study aims to illustrate the implementation of parents’ roles as teachers at home during the Covid-19 pandemic. The subjects of this study were 15 parents with the criteria of having children aged 4-6 years, located in Kampung Bonjol RT 04, Pondok Karya sub-district, Pondok Aren district, and were willing to become research respondents. Data collection was carried out using the interview method with the format of open questions, observation, and documentation. Data analysis was performed using the interactive analysis of the Miles and Hubberman model, which included data collection, data reduction, data display, and drawing conclusions and data verification. The results showed that during learning from home, parents carried out learning for their children by providing an explanation of Covid-19, the dangers and prevention, providing various learning and play activities, communicating with teachers to get guidance or explanation of the tasks given, and using technology such as books, TV, and mobile phones as the media and learning tools. However, the implementation of this role is done more by mothers than fathers. The conclusion of this research is parents, especially mothers, have carried out their role as teachers at home, especially in the implementation of learning similar to the teacher’s duties at school, in accordance with the knowledge and abilities they have.
