Nord Anglia School Jakarta has a fantastic new and expanded learning environment for our youngest learners (ages 18 months to 3 years) in the purposefully designed ‘Nursery Pod’.

Our young learners now have access to spacious interconnected indoor and outdoor spaces, where they have the opportunity to explore and engage in purposeful learning challenges and experiences offered in each of the spaces. The ‘Nursery Pod’ consists of: a spacious, naturally lit indoor room with beautiful new furnishings and resources; a stimulating and calm playroom room for the young learners; a soft-play room for adventurous rumbling and tumbling; an outdoor creative and messy play area; challenging climbing equipment; and a natural garden to explore and enjoy. Our school nurtures curiosity, independence and instils a joy of learning in our Nursery programme and helps each child to flourish.


Taking a Journey with Nord Anglia School Jakarta

 What is it that makes NAS Jakarta Early Years program special? Is it our highly qualified and passionate educators? Is it our beautiful and thoughtful indoor and outdoor learning environments? Is it our strong belief and understanding in the play-based approach towards Early Years education? It is a culmination of all these factors and more. The school's holistic, community-centred program puts your child at the centre of their learning. We know, and value, that your child is unique. That is why our educational offer is tailor-made for each child in our care. Children are invited to learn through areas that interest them and are supported and challenged at the appropriate level to their developmental stage.


Curriculum and Philosophy

We stay up-to-date with the best educational practices from around the world and enhances our own offer accordingly. The school’s main curriculum guidance comes from the UK. Our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum is a robust, enabling and well-rounded approach that values every child as a unique and competent learner who will develop and learn in their own way and at their own pace. We also embrace the Reggio Emilia approach towards education; believing that children learn best through self-directed, experiential play in a relationship driven environment. We recognise that the importance of play cannot be understated. Play is a fundamental part of a child’s learning journey that will only strengthen their later educational successes.

Outdoor Learning

Children are naturally drawn to the outdoors and the exploration and physical opportunities it provides. At NAS Jakarta, we have a lush green campus with many outdoor spaces to discover and explore. Your children will have the chance to chase butterflies, see nesting birds, scale climbing frames, construct water channels, try their hand at gardening or engage with any number of activities set out by our Early Years staff. Outdoor time is an extension of the learning and inquiry taking place in the classrooms. Teachers are actively involved with students during outdoor exploration, helping the children to make connections in their learning and develop respect for nature.
