Early childhood education means the self-education of each child, discovering the world for oneself, experiencing emotional security and comfort by and using the present moment for its development. Children are explorers, musicians, researchers, artists, poets, athletes or mathematicians. We guide your child on this journey of self-discovery. Our Kindergarten and Kinderkrippe of the German School Jakarta, together with its premises and a solid pedagogical concept based on German and international approaches to early childhood education, offers the ideal setting for early childhood education of a child.

Our Educational Approach

[showhide type=”post4″ more_text=”Mehr” less_text=”Weniger”]

  • The child is the designer of his own development

    Our educational work is based on the life situation of the children. The core of our work is the child with his individual needs, experiences, feelings, interests and abilities. These form the starting point of our pedagogy. Our holistic approach encompasses the fields of personality development, linguistic education and literacy, mathematical education, natural science education, musical-arts education, motor education as well as social and (inter) cultural education.

    Our daily routine is flexible and therefore offers the opportunity to play freely, participate in guided activities and experience what it means to be part of a group. Our daily routine is shaped by rituals, which gives children the necessary security. The topics, interests and needs of the children are the focus of our work and are the starting point of our project ideas.

    In our Kindergarten and Kinderkrippe, children learn and immerse into the German language, which means interaction will take place only in the German language. In order to meet the demands of the global world, the children will also learn and be exposed to the English and the Indonesian languages during specific classes.
