Early Childhood

In our dreams, we'd love to walk with each young learner through our Early Childhood Centers so they can feel the warmth and creativity of those special places at JIS. At least we can stop here to express our anticipation to the kids we'd love to meet. Click above to discover our thoughts toward each new student, and feel free to read them to your youngster as you eavesdrop.

The Early Childhood program serves children in Early Childhood I and II who range in age from 3 to 5 on both the Pondok Indah and Pattimura campuses.



Levels and Classrooms

The Early Childhood program is divided into two levels: EC I and EC II. Children belong to classroom groups with a teacher who is assisted by a host country Teacher's Aide.

EC Schedule

PIE and PEL operate on a six-day cycle. These days are indicated on a calendar which is supplied to all parents on a monthly basis. This enables parents to plan for each day.


Starting August 2011, children in Early Childhood 1 and 2 will share the same schedule, starting school at 7:30 AM and finishing the day at 12:00 PM noon.
