Abstract: There are a number of ways that one might morally educate a child. One can demonstrate various virtues and encourage the child to copy his or her own behavior. One can issue a series of imperatives and punish if failure to abide by them. Moreover, one might tell the child stories with moral lessons in order to elicit favorable behavior and to discourage unfavorable behavior. In this research, we study how kindergarten teachers can better serve more appropriate aims of moral education by using stories. The main findings of this study are as follows: first, moral education is considered complementary material in kindergarten in Indonesia. There are few teachers who use stories as moral education in kindergaten. Second, teachers play an important role in helping children understand the story and capture the message of the story. Teachers are therefore challenged to explore the content of stories and help children connect the story with their daily lives. Third, the ways in which teachers see morality affects the way they convey moral values in a story.
