TK Aisiyah Busthanul Athfal (ABA) 2 in Banjarmasin is the first kindergarten that has implemented in Banjarmasin. Therefore, this qualitative research was conducted with a case study approach, to explore the TK ABA 2 Kindergarten Banjarmasin process so that they could use BCCT, as well as the problems and solutions they had faced so that they could be input for other schools who wanted to also use this method. The principle and six teachers were interviewed to get information about the case. TK ABA 2 Banjarmasin started implementing BCCT in 2013. There are a number of things that need to be prepared, including preparing teachers especially in terms of educational background and center preparation including the availability of toys in each center. Obstacles can be resolved if all stake holders are dedicated to implement BCCT.
