History & Profile
Kinderstation is a school for preschool, kindergarten, elementary, junior, and high school aged students in Yogyakarta. It uses English as the medium of instruction and teaches using the International Primary Curriculum (IEYC/IPC/IMYC) and GAC. It was founded in 2007 by FR Avi Sariantina, DW Herry Susanto, and Soebakdi (2010). Kinderstation is THE FIRST ENGLISH SPEAKING DAYCARE IN YOGYAKARTA.
The reason for Kinderstation School’s establishment was to increase the quality of education available to children in Yogyakarta. In 2007, there was no preschool or daycare that used an international curriculum or English as the medium of instruction in Yogyakarta. However at that time, schools with these attributes could be found in Jakarta and other major cities throughout Indonesia. So at that time, there was a gap between the range of education options available to the children of Yogyakarta and their counterparts in cities such as Jakarta, Surabaya, Medan, and Makassar.
The founder opened a branch of early childhood and kindergarten education facility, franchised from Singapore; Sunsmile Kids, and built an English speaking daycare under the name of Kinderstation.
