This study investigated how early childhood teachers use e-communication notebook for parent involvement, the functions of e-communication notebook that early childhood teachers use, and the early childhood teachers’ attitudes toward the use of e-communication notebook for parent involvement. The results of the study indicate that the most common type of e-communication notebook for the early childhood teachers to use is blog. Moreover, lack of computer skills and time-consuming seem to be two key factors that influence the early childhood teachers’ use of e-communication notebook. As to the functions of the e-communication notebook, parent notice and school information are the most popular functions for the early childhood teachers to use. Only about half of the early childhood teachers think the use of e-communication notebook is helpful with respect to parent involvement. In addition to teachers’ computer skills and time-consuming, parents’ use of the e-communication notebook might be another factor that influences the teachers' attitudes.
