Re: A good preschool

Hi Irvan,
I would recommend to take any trial class that offered by the preschools before deciding applying. Preschools may appear to have superb program and facilities, however nothing is useful until your child experience the real classroom environment - the teacher, the classmate, the lessons and the facilities.

It may take sometime to find the best school that fits with your child personality (and the parent's need). It is even normal for parent to try 10 classes.

If you are looking for preschool at jakarta utara, I would suggest you try out Good Shepherd International Preschool. They are using English and Chinese as their teaching language which helps if you want your child to be bilingual as early as possible.

I know the principal, and they are opening trial classes.
You can even book the trial class that suits your child age online at gspreschool.net/preschool-trial-classes/

Happy hunting !

Hi everyone. I know full day childcare / Preschool is uncommon in JKT.

Like to check if anyone knows if there are ANY that do full day childcare? Really need a school that can take my boy in the whole day.

Thanks

Thanks homeaway. We have been decided on Etonhouse International preschool. But it is alittle bit far from where we will be staying. Probably I need to think of how to send my kids to school now.

Hi!

My husband will be relocating to jakarta in a few months time. I should be bringing my 2 kids along too. I am looking at preschool for my 2 kids. Currently, my son is attending N2 at Chiltern House in Singapore.

Would appreciate if anyone can provide me with more information on the preschools in Jakarta in terms of curriculum and fees. And if the standard is similar to singapore's?

Anyone know how much is the fees for Chiltern House or Eton House in Jakarta? I emailed them but they didn't reply. :(

Lolaz,

CH or Eton House Jakarta annual fees range from 7k-8k USD, if i'm not mistaken. I stayed in Singapore for a long while too before I move back to Jakarta. I would say the standard is not quite up to par with Singapore's but they are the top schools in town.


If I may suggest, there is a school called Mighty Minds Preschool. My children and niece go there and they love it! Their school is clean and has a friendly atmosphere. Curriculum is unique and creative. Plus, the teachers are experienced and great with the children. It's around Senayan area which is pretty much at the heart of the city.

Hope this information helps!

Re: A good preschool

Thanks, pmm0202!

I have another question... Is there any good and safe accomodation near Chiltern house? I am wondering if I can walk the children to school if it is really close by. I heard about the traffic in Jakarta and is really worried about it. I have motion sickness, really don't want to be stuck in traffic for long time.

I read that it is not advisable to walk in Jakarta... Does it apply to residential area too?
