The children's house (U-Thant)

Level of Education



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.

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 centre 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.

Not only that, the Alfresco Dining area at U-Thant centre 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.

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.
