Preschoolers are creative individuals, unfortunately many parents and teachers are less aware or less able to appreciate children's creativity. Education services to early childhood are a very influential basis for the development of children from childhood to adulthood. Based on the importance of parenting in increasing children's creativity, the problem is what kind of parenting style is effective in increasing children's creativity. This study aims to determine the influence of individual characteristics and family characteristics on creativity and parenting on the level of creativity of kindergarten-age children. This research method is a cross sectional study. Conducted at Ananda Kindergarten with a sample of 30 children. With primary and secondary data types. Data were obtained through observation, interviews and documentation studies. Theresult of the study explained that the sex and birth order of children did not correlatewith the parenting style applied by parents at home. Family characteristics do not correlate with their parenting style to children, nor do children's characteristics to creativity. There is a significant relationship between father and mother education with children's creativity in dealing with boredom, in answering children's questions in play activities can increase creativity. There is a significant relationship between the parenting given by parents to the child's imagination ability, getting to know the surrounding environment, answering questions asked from children can increase children's ability to experiment, cause new stimulation of children in overcoming boredom.
