Assalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb
Abata English Speaking Moslem Kindergarten (ABATA) is one of the leading kindergarten which uses English for communication as well as for teaching medium, and applies Islamic values and methods in day-to-day life. ABATA is specifically designed as a school for 1 to 6 years old children. Established in August 2007 with only 5 active students, currently we have as many as 110 students studying across four grades. So far, alhamdulillaah, we have succesfully graduated over 90 students (and counting). Most of our graduates are continuing their study in leading and high-quality primary schools in Jakarta namely Madina, Global Sevilla, Al-Azhar, Global Islamic School, Tugasku, SD Labschool, etc.
We believe that children need to be enriched as early as possible with spiritual education, and embracing Islamic principles and belief to strengthen them and provide them a solid foundation in their character building. We are using age appropriate activities that enable the children to learn according to their own pace and need, in a small group class.
In here, students are accepted based on their age. Therefore, you can enroll your kid(s) anytime, and your child(ren) can start at any day. You don’t have to wait for the new academic year. Children will move to higher class based on their age and ability.
ABATA uses national plus curriculum basis. Our curriculum is designed according to our vision, which is to educate children to become creative intelligent and independent individual with Islamic morality. Students are taught using phonics reading method.
Islamic values, methods, principles are applied and taught to the students intensively in the class in an interactive and interesting way. We have two dedicated and experienced religion teacher to carry out that task.
A range of facilities are provided to support the learning activities of our students : outdoor and indoor playground, swimming pool for water play, multimedia computer in each class, daily healthy snacks, teaching materials, etc.
When class is dismissed, we provide an array of after school activities to enrich the students. The activities are : Clay Art (with native speaker from France, Mr. Paul), Taekwondo, Reading Lesson, and Iqra’.
Every year, we arrange a number of off-school activities designed for each grade. The intention of this activities is to give the students a learning experience and environment beyond the classroom.
In previous years, students have visited TMII and Ancol for their field trip. Other than those, we also took the students to Superindo supermarket and eateries like Papa Ron Pizza and McDonalds for our store visit programme. In the end of every academic year, we hold a Year End Performance, where each students will be performing on the stage, and, of course, parents are invited to see the performance of their loved ones.
Islamic activities are also regularly held. Teachers every year setup the school for Manasik Hajj to facilitate the students to experience the amazing haj pilgrimage. On every Friday, because students are too young for Friday Prayer, we request the students to perform Shalat Dhuha, led by one of our male staff. Giving charity is one thing that wasn’t missed. Both parents and students from time to time have been asked to donate some of the their fortune for the less-fortunated ones out there in several occassions : Zakat Fitrah, Qurban, natural disaster victims, Zakat Maal for the orphanage, Ifthar on the road, etc.
We also signed our students up for some competition, and we proudly inform you their achievement :
