The education of character to the early childhood is essentially important because this stage is the golden stage to construct the child’s characters. However, the implementation of character education with instructional media encounters crucial problems especially applying the educational video. This study is to identify the factors which are influencing the effectiveness of character-based instructional video implementation to the early childhood education in Padang.

This research conducts the quantitative approach with quasi-experiment. In addition, it involves 125 early childhood students in PAUD Adzkia II Tabing, Koto Tangah, Padang. Specifically, this study applies the purposive sampling categorised to Class A and Class B with 17 students in each. Both classes then were given discrete treatments to observe the ability of character education. The data was collected with questionnaires.
