Preschools in Indonesia Within large cities in Indonesia you will find a wide variety of preschool options for methods of teaching English language for preschool young children. Some preschools organize Moms and Tots programs for 1-2 year olds who are preparing to enter a preschool program.
There are also many extracurricular activities, including physical play, music, art and other social opportunities for young children which are organized by community organizations or through commercial entities. What’s most important is to find the preschool experience that you feel is most appropriate for your child. If you are looking for a more Asian academic setting to prepare for elementary school or an open experience and creative play orientation, there is a school that will match your requirements. They must follow a standard curriculum, set by the Department, which prepares children for entry into the Indonesian school system. These schools are attended primarily by Indonesian children and instruction is conducted in the Indonesian language.
Due to the limited facilities available and the need to follow the official curriculum, there is not much time for or emphasis on creative play and freedom to explore for the children. Mobility of the children is limited. With the high percentage of middle and upper class Indonesia children raised by nannies, TK is often seen as the place where children learn to feed and care for themselves and begin on the road to independence. International Preschools There are a number of excellent preschools owned and run by professionals in early childhood education. While not all may have immediately recognizable ‘franchise names’, the curriculum, facilities and training are of international standard. A number of internationally franchised preschools are also found in Indonesia following American, British, Australian or other international education philosophy. Their prices are generally higher than local schools as they must pay a foreign currency franchise fee.
