Jakarta Montessori School turns 30 years this year since its inception on 5th October 1986. We follow the best practices of an authentic Montessori school. The school clearly defines its institutional identity, Montessori principles, enduring values and beliefs, and educational outcomes. The School aims to give your child the best possible beginning to develop him/herself physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.
Jakarta Montessori School is recognized as the centre of excellence for Montessori pre-schools. Our school is a fully accredited Montessori School with the Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board, London. We are also affiliated to the International Montessori Council in the USA and Montessori Australian Foundation. All our lead teachers have International Montessori Diplomas.
The Montessori Programme is centred on the child and encourages building a foundation of interest in learning. By giving the opportunities in our school’s prepared environment and with guidance from our well-qualified teachers, your child will develop a love for learning and achieve independence, self-confidence and high self-esteem. He/She will be in a unique environment where children from all parts of the world come together and learn from each other through their daily interaction and appreciation of the different cultures. He/She will be encouraged to learn to work to the best of his/her ability, care for and respect others through a deeper understanding of the meaning of sharing, and expand a natural curiosity for the world around him/her. Our students develop their critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, fostering a lifelong love of learning.
JMS has a Moms and Tots (6 to 18 months), Toddlers (18 months to 3 years), Preschool (3 to 6 years) and a Primary level (6 to 12 years). The school moved to a new spacious, custom designed and built premises in September 2005. We have dedicated classrooms for Toddlers, Preschool, Lower Primary and Upper Primary. Each classroom contains a complete set of Montessori materials appropriate for the age group within that classroom. Every classroom also has access to an outside area where children are able to plant vegetables and flowers or to work outside in the clean and fresh air.
We do not discriminate between sex, colour or creed at Jakarta Montessori School. We're proud of our beautiful and exceptional students and would like to invite you to visit our facility any time.
