At Jakarta Multicultural School (JMS), the learning approach for children at the preschool/kindergarten level is indeed very different. While many parents may believe that children simply learn and play around the playground or classroom, JMS takes a unique and effective approach to early childhood education. Through a combination of engaging activities, hands-on learning experiences, and a multicultural curriculum, JMS strives to provide a well-rounded education that fosters creativity, critical thinking, and a love for learning.
At this level, students are referred to as early years and are organized into four classes: toddler, preschool, reception, and preparatory. Despite their young age, these students actively engage in a wide range of festivals and activities, including the JMS festival, art festival, sports day, Chinese New Year, math and science week, and more.
At JMS, our holistic, developmentally appropriate, and balanced curriculum is delivered through learning-by-playing approaches. But that’s not all! We also offer off-site learning activities that allow our students to explore and learn in a different environment. One such activity is our upcoming two-day Camp Week on November 2nd and 3rd. It’s a fantastic chance for our students to have fun, make new friends, and continue their educational journey outside of the classroom.
