This study used a phenomenological qualitative approach to explore the intricate landscape of early childhood education in Bangladesh, focusing on the perspective of parents. The study involves 47 people from three different cities, using in-depth interviews to discover a diverse range of experiences. The application of thematic analysis uncovers six fundamental themes that encompass the various aspects of parental perspectives. The themes encompassed in this study consist of prioritizing holistic development, cultural values and educational aspirations, socio-economic challenges and access barriers, positive perception of early intervention, desire for communication and collaboration with educators, and the need to balance tradition and innovation in education. Through an examination of these issues, the study not only sheds light on the complex nature of parental attitudes but also offers crucial insights for the development of policies and the creation of early childhood education Programs in Bangladesh. The results emphasize the significance of considering cultural, economic, and educational subtleties to develop comprehensive and efficient solutions that align with the varied parental perspectives throughout various regions of Bangladesh.
