It all began when Aunty Nan, the founder of The children’s house, was introduced to the Montessori Philosophy and education during a dire need for change in an unfulfilling career in the corporate world. Montessori not only changed the life of Aunty Nan, but made a positive difference in the early childhood education landscape in Malaysia.
As the first preschool in Malaysia to apply the complete and comprehensive Montessori Method of education, The children’s house is one of the undisputed leaders for early childhood education in the country. More than 30 years of proven record and success stories. The children’s house has gained the trust and recognition of many Malaysian and expatriate parents and is often regarded The Montessori preschool to nurture children into compassionate and well-balanced individuals who are confident, independent, socially adaptable, and above all, positive and lifelong learners.
In 2010, The children’s house proudly became the member of the Busy Bees Asia group of education companies, fully dedicated to outstanding care and quality education for children.
Today, in our iconic red and white schoolhouses in twelve locations in Klang Valley, the teaching continues in adherence to the approach created by Dr Maria Montessori.
children’s house programmes are divided into two groups: Montessori Playgroup and Montessori Junior. Programmes for each age group focus on preparing the child for the next level and our low teacher : child ratios are designed for optimal learning. All of our activities are guided by a respect for the teacher, a respect for other children and a respect for the materials.
The Montessori method offers a nurturing, non-competitive learning environment which aims to meet the individual needs of each child in his physical, social, emotional and intellectual development. With the environment as an important element, classrooms are well-planned to avoid overcrowding and everything is child-sized and child-friendly.
