Pasaran Island, Bandar Lampung City is known as the literacy village through the central government program. The main livelihoods of families in Pasaran Island are fishermen and processors (40.41%). Fathers‟ daily activities are going to sea for approximately 19 hours/day every month. Therefore, the involvement of fathers in terms of caring and educating children is low and still dominated by mothers and teachers at schools. The aim of the study is to analyze the relationship between social demography, father involvement in literacy and literacy skills of early childhood. Meanwhile, the research approach used is cross sectional study. The research location, Pasaran Island, Bandar Lampung City, was chosen purposively. The sample selection used was simple random sampling. The samples in this study were 30 fishermen families who have children aged 3-6 years. The findings of this study were half (56.7%) of respondents had father involvement in literacy in the low category. More than half (66.7%) of respondents have literacy skills in the low category. There was a significant negative correlation between father's age and early childhood literacy skills (r = -0.406, p = 0.026). Early childhood literacy abilities are related to father involvement. Increasing involvement of fathers in literacy activities can indirectly help improve early childhood literacy skills, especially reading and storytelling. Recommendations are the parenting socialization of father involvement in literacy.
