Present trends show that the teaching of English is not only conducted in elementary schools but even in kindergarten. The society wants their children to learn English earlier and also the schools want to prepare their students before they face English instructional materials in elementary schools. Since not all kindergartens include English as instructional materials, new research focusing on the teaching of English in kindergarten is needed. This study is focused on the teaching of English to young learners at “Permata Iman” kindergarten Malang. This school was chosen because English is one instructional material. The study tries to answer the statement of problems about: (1) the teaching techniques chosen, (2) the instructional materials used, and (3) the instructional media used. The design of this study is descriptive qualitative. The instruments used to collect the data are observation, interview and documents. The data collection itself took two weeks, which consisted of three steps: (1) observing the teaching process in the classroom, (2) interviewing the teacher, and (3) taking fieldnotes. Meanwhile, the data analysis procedures are: (1) coding categories, (2) sorting the data that differ, (3) displaying the data, (4) discussing the findings, and (5) making a conclusion.
