Availability and effective utilization of learning resources are required to improve the internal efficiency of Early Childhood Education (ECE). A good ECE practice supports collaboration with communities and parents. It is against this backdrop that this study examined the effect of parent-school partnership on the availability and utilization of learning resources in early childhood centres. The descriptive survey type of research design was adopted. A total of 567 respondents participated in the study. “Parents Questionnaire on Parent-school partnership (0.94)” and “Schools Questionnaires on Parent-School partnership (0.77)” are two instruments used to collect data. Data collected was analyzed using percentages, mean, standard deviation and t-test. The findings from the study indicated that the extent of parent-school partnership in early childhood centres in Ibadan South-West is low. Parent-school workshop should be organized to enlighten parents on their roles in their children’s schools and also equip teachers with the technical know-how on how to involve parents in activities.
