ABSTRACT

The learning at Kindergarten in all over Indonesia uses Area learning model, centre learning model, and group learning model. In fact, the reference book of these three learning models does not exist yet. The purpose of this research and development is to produce valid and proper reference book of Area learning model, Center learning model, and Group learning model as the handbook and guidelines for Lecturers of PAUD (Early Childhood Education), PAUD teachers, and PAUD students. The research method used was the R&D (Research and Development), which referred to the ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Develop, Implementation, and Evaluation) model. Data analysis was obtained from three analysis stages, such as material questionnaire validation, design questionnaire validation, and users' responses analysis (teacher and college students) towards the reference book. The results of material validation were conducted two times. The result of material validation the first step is in "good" criteria". The second validation obtains criteria "very good". Likewise, the responses from the teacher, for the reference book material are in the "very good" category, and the reference book design is in the "good" category. These results show that the reference book developed is proven valid and proper to be used in learning at school.
