Best and Most Recommended Kindergarten Schools in Jakarta

Kindergartens in Jakarta

Giving a child the kind of first-class, qualitative education that they need to succeed in life is the dream of all responsible parents. 

And that dream of a better future for their children is what keeps them going, no matter what kind of life's shackles and obstacles they’re facing.

Being an Indonesian and Asian parent, you have a responsibility like everyone else, and that responsibility is to ensure that your child or children obtain high-quality education throughout their academic years, and that should begin with the roots.


And let me let you know or remind you that the fastest and most critical physical and mental development occurs when children are between zero and six years old. 

Early childhood education is one of the most necessary things that your children, between the ages of 4 and 6, need. 

And that education begins with attending kindergarten, which would transform your child in every way, from shaping his writing and reading skills to socialization, good behavior, creative skills, cognitive skills, et cetera.

I believe you already know what kindergarten is, but still, I would like to elaborate on it before we proceed to what meets us here.


Kindergarten is the first school where your child will receive formal education prior to attending playgroup, which is popularly known as PAUD (Pendidikan Anak Usia Dini) in Indonesia.

Through kindergarten, your child or children will be introduced to their first [or, preferably, second] environment after PAUD, where they will spend two years learning together with their peers.

And there they will learn different skills like social, emotional, and cognitive skills, as well as physical development and creative expression.

Therefore, before your child begins his formal educational journey, you must ensure that he gets the best facilities, from school uniforms, books, and bags to the school he will attend.
