The children's house (TTDI)

Level of Education



It all began when Aunty Nan, the founder of The children’s house, was introduced to the Montessori Philosophy and education during a dire need for change in an unfulfilling career in the corporate world. Montessori not only changed the life of Aunty Nan but made a positive difference in the early childhood education landscape in Malaysia.

Tucked away in a quiet, leafy part of Damansara Heights, the first The children’s house preschool in Malaysia opened its doors in 1986. Aunty Nan and her small team made up of a young enthusiastic trainee teacher, an administrator, the family cook, and her 4-year-old son welcomed five children from Malaysia, France, Sweden, Denmark, and England. Through the years, The children’s house grew alongside more than 20,000 local and expatriate children from all around the world.

As the first preschool in Malaysia to apply the complete and comprehensive Montessori Method of education, The children’s house is one of the undisputed leaders for early childhood education in the country. More than 30 years of proven record and success stories. The children’s house has gained the trust and recognition of many Malaysian and expatriate parents and is often regarded The Montessori preschool to nurture children into compassionate and well-balanced individuals who are confident, independent, socially adaptable, and above all, positive and lifelong learners.

In 2010, The children’s house proudly became a member of the Busy Bees Asia group of education companies, fully dedicated to outstanding care and quality education for children.

Today, in our iconic red and white schoolhouses in twelve locations in Klang Valley, the teaching continues in adherence to the approach created by Dr. Maria Montessori.

The children’s house TTDI officially opened in 2009 to meet the needs of a larger community in this expanding suburb. The programmes at The children’s house TTDI include Montessori Playgroup for toddlers (18 months to 2.5 years old) and Montessori Junior for Nursery and Preparatory (2.6 to 6 years old).

The preschool has a half-day programme which runs from 9 am to 1 pm. The beautiful red and white preschool building has been specially designed to meet the needs of your little one. Everything in the centre has been scaled down to the child’s dimensions.

Each programme focuses on preparing the child for the next level. The low teacher: child ratio ensures optimal learning. At the core of every activity is respect – respect for the teacher, respect for each other and respect for the materials.

The close community at TTDI ensures that your child has the freedom to move, socialise, make friends and develop social skills, language and speech. In the TTDI community, everyone is a part of the bigger family and parents and teachers are closely involved in helping the child realise their full potential.

We trust that we are doing our part to nurture the young lives at TTDI in a way that they will always want to give back to the community that has always been so supportive.
