Since 1986, The children’s house is proud to be introduced as the first ever Montessori preschool in Malaysia. With over 30 years of history and 13 schools across Klang Valley, we’ve gained the trust and recognition of parents in nurturing children into compassionate and well-balanced individuals who are confident, independent, socially adaptable, and above all, positive and lifelong learners.
Opened in November 2013, Oasis Square Ara Damansara is our first school within a complex situated in a new bustling township. It is also the first amongst our schools to introduce an award-winning Infant Care programme for infants as young as 3 months of age. All the facilities including an indoor playground are thoughtfully planned within this 14,000 square feet space. The rooms in the centre are spacious, well-lit and neatly arranged with engaging learning materials. The indoor playground ensures that the children can enjoy a weather-proof playtime at any time of the year.
Catering for children aged 3 months to 6 years old, each programme is Montessori-based, focused on preparing the child for the next level. The learning environment at the centre is warm, friendly and secure and the curriculum for Infant Care in Ara Damansara focuses on refining the physical movement, cognitive abilities, language skills, mathematical skills, taking care of self, taking care of the environment and practising politeness and courtesy.
The activities at Preparatory level (5 to 6 years old) are structured in a way that helps to develop the cognitive skills of the child and prepares them for the formal school. We lay emphasis on grace and courtesy where children learn to respect each other, practice manners, and resolve conflicts. Children are encouraged to become adept at reading and writing, develop creative thinking and problem-solving skills.
Even after 100 years of its creation, the Montessori curriculum is still relevant and well-acclaimed, making it one of the most popular approaches to early childhood education all across the world. It offers a nurturing, non-competitive and harmonious environment to promote the physical, emotional, social and cognitive abilities of the child and above all, inculcate a lifelong love of learning.
