Abstract: Culture is way of human life both knowledge, belief, art, law, morals, customs and good habits that are maintained. Culture can affect a person's way of thinking and interaction. Children learn from the cultural life behind them. The cultural contribution of each child if it can be accommodated properly by the teacher and parents will have its own strength as the strength of the culture is rooted in society. Education is a process that makes the entry of culture, making people behave according to culture. School as one of the places of enculturation of a culture is actually an input for children in developing themselves. The cognitive, affective and psychomotor development of children can be built through culture by the help of adults and peers, which is called culture-based learning and cannot be separated from social interactions that will achieve the development of good mental functions.  It is hoped that readers will be able to understand and apply character education through the power of culture. Learning to understand others as a form of world safety pillar through "learning to live together with them ..." requires real practice in the lives of children in the classroom. Real cultural practices are related to giving meaning to how each culture is able to dialogue itself as in daily life, language, games, and fairy tales (verbal art) which are rich in moral and didactic elements can be collected in the curriculum.
