We consider a family of second-order parabolic systems in divergence formwith rapidly oscillating and time-dependent periodic coefficients, arising in the theory of homogenization. We obtain uniform interior W1,p, Holder, and Lipschitz estimates as well as boundary W1,p and Holder estimates, using compactness methods. As a consequence, we establish uniform W1,p estimates for the initial-Dirichlet problems in C1 cylinders.
