Literacy and numeracy education for children in kindergarten really needs to be developed. The development of literacy and numeracy in children in kindergarten is closely related to the ability to read and write and count in children. Literacy and numeracy activities are also related to children's ability to receive, analyze and communicate regarding literacy and numeracy concepts. Emergent literacy is a concept that supports learning to read and write when children are in the process of becoming literate or can be called understanding letters. The theoretical foundations used in this study include the notion of literacy, emergen literacy, types of literacy, and the teacher's role in literacy development. The research used is qualitative research. The instrument that is the subject of the research is the researchers through observation, interviews with teachers and also documentation studies. The results showed that the literacy and numeracy skill development program in this private kindergarten was positive. Students learnt to read and write or recognize letters, words and numbers by playing cards, guessing pictures, guessing colors and sticking letters and numbers.
