In 1978, Kinderland was first established as Yamaha Kindergarten in Marine Parade. It was to meet the raising demands of busy parents, who then seek for a school that could have both music and academic learning in one. Since its beginning, Kinderland has held confidence that music enhances language literacy in young children and provides crucial support for brain development in their early years. This belief continues to be the foundation of Kinderland’s curriculum today.
Sixteen years later, Kinderland’s first and longest partnership began. Mrs Suparno, unable to find a suitable kindergarten with quality curriculum locally for her son, started a regional search for a reputable preschool brand to bring to Jakarta. In 1994, Mrs Suparno and her husband, Dr Suparno Adijanto, founded Indonesia’s first Kinderland centre in South Jakarta.
With Indonesia’s economic growth, the number of affluent families and demand for quality education, also increased in tandem. In February 2016 Kinderland International Education and the Suparnos inked a joint venture agreement to leverage on the combined strengths and expertise of both partners to provide greater access to quality preschool in Indonesia. Today the Suparnos oversee seven Kinderland centres across Jakarta that nurture over 700 hundred children annually. Dr Suparno attributes this success and their long standing relationship with Kinderland to the shared values and passion for excellence in education for future generations.
The passion and innovative spirit of Kinderland’s dedicated team of early childhood education professionals, teaching staff, professional curriculum team, teachers and our partners have had a direct impact on the quality of development of children in their early years. Thousands of children have passed through Kinderland’s doors and taken their place in the world as productive citizens.
Over the last forty years, we have established our Kinderland footprints in eight countries, through direct investments, joint ventures and franchising. Kinderland’s unique renowned music-infused curriculum and programmes empower the minds of more than 20,000 preschoolers annually. Children in our care will always be our number one priority.
