A unique preschool experience at TCH U-Thant
“The greatest development is achieved during the first years of life, and therefore it is then that the greatest care should be taken. If this is done, then the child does not become a burden; he will reveal himself as the greatest marvel of nature,” Dr. Maria Montessori.
Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, The children’s house TCH U-Thant offers a beautiful building nestled between tall green trees. Carefully designed keeping in mind the deep connection between nature and development of your child, U-Thant provides a 1.5-acre spacious compound with exclusive facilities and latest playground equipment to create a constant opportunity for exploration and fun.
The Montessori Method believes that every child is born a sensorial explorer, and that’s why U-Thant allows children to explore the outdoors and indoors freely as they embrace the potential of the first of its kind – a Montessori Cottage in The City.
Built with the purpose of stimulating creativity in children, the Atelier tree is a key feature of the preschool that your little one will completely love. It is a massive tree with an atelier built around it. The atelier has been specially designed with glass windows including the rooftop to ensure your child gets sufficient sunlight and can enjoy the outdoors to get inspiration for creating artwork. All the original work from the centre will then be displayed in the Children’s Art Gallery.
Yet another amazing feature of the preschool is the Wet and Wonderful water play. We all know that children love water and The children’s house U-Thant gives them an opportunity to get imaginative with water. Your child is going to be so eager to be back to the preschool every day.
Not only that, the Alfresco Dining area at U-Thant adds to the perfect childcare facilities for your little one. So your child will be able to enjoy the cool air and the freshness of the surroundings under the shade of the soothing trees.
Nature-inspired learning at The children’s house U-Thant
The U-Thant preschool recognises the importance of nature or play-based learning in the early years of your child. Every activity is carefully designed to encourage the social, cognitive, emotional and physical development of the child. Most of all, it triggers the sense of curiosity and creativity in children, which helps them develop problem-solving skills required to be successful.
As children interact with the environment and learn to take care of their surroundings, a sense of responsibility and kindness develops. Eventually, children learn to identify their emotions, express them, and respond effectively. They develop great self-esteem and it drives them to follow their passion and be the best version of themselves.
This Montessori Cottage stands out with the iconic red French windows, furnished with modern learning spaces. The programmes available at The children’s house U-Thant include Montessori Playgroup for Pre-toddlers and toddlers (8-18 months) and Montessori Junior for Nursery and Preparatory (2.6 to 6 years old).
U-Thant is not only a preschool, but it is also a daycare. A full-time programme from 8am to 6pm gives mothers an opportunity to take mornings off, go for extracurricular activities, part-time jobs or full-time jobs. Having a childcare that you can trust is such a big relief for the parents.
As always, our prepared environment is purposefully designed, child-centred and stimulating. A non-competitive and nature-inspired learning atmosphere opens the child’s mind to learning and ultimately activates their desire for lifelong learning.
A complete Montessori learning environment
The Montessori method of learning gives your child a perfect mix of academic-based and play-based learning. Even after a century of its creation, the Montessori method still remains relevant and stands the test of time, making it one of the most popular preschool curriculum among parents and children. The materials have been developed through years of extensive research by Dr. Maria Montessori.
Your child can enjoy a variety of materials in the centre. Home-like materials like jugs, spoons, ladles, and bowls are available to develop practical skills in the child. Activities like spooning, transferring and pouring helps to increase concentration, coordination of movement, balance and foster a spirit of independence in the child.
You can also find a number of sensory play materials to refine the senses (auditory, visual, tactile) of your child. Apart from this a good part of the preschool curriculum also consists of interesting language materials and number work in order to develop the language skills and mathematical concepts of your child. The wide range of materials are coupled with nature, walks, outdoor play, cultural activities and projects. The daycare will soon become your child’s favourite place, while you can run your errands for the day.
The children’s house U-Thant is all ready to be a partner in the growth and all-round development of your child. Let your child get the most beautiful experience of nature, learn to build relationships, make friends and develop a lifelong love for learning.
