    The purpose of this study was to analyze the importance-performance of influencing factors of a community-based education network for improving young children's character by region type. The subjects in this study were 344 teachers of kindergarten and child care center located at 13 provinces in Korea. Factors influencing community-based education networks derived by literature review were vision sharing, leadership, interdependence, resource richness, resource transaction, loop learning, and administrative-financial support. Based on the seven factors and sixteen sub-factors, the questionnaire was composed of 16 items that affect the influence of a community-based education network. Responses of teachers were analyzed by Importance-Performance Analysis (IPA) according to region type. The results of the study show that there are three common strengths elements: Educational interest in young children in the community, the will of the principal of kindergarten or child care center, and share character education data were actively implemented. Common factors that require intensive 'improvement efforts' are suitable space and facilities for children's character education in the community and gain operational budgets. These results can be used as basic data in establishing the role of the local community for cultivating the character of young children and the direction to activate a community-based education network.
