Rumah Kecil School has established since 2014. We are concerned about education and environment issues. We aim to provide an individualized learning journey with natural learning environments to support children to grow to be confident individuals who are responsible, compassionate and creative builder for the future. We are also proud to offer a holistic approach to education in Indonesia, incorporating both Indonesia curriculum and Cambridge.
Our international kindergarten and elementary school (open soon in 2020) are both located in Sanur Bali. We are proud of our unique looking campus with Joglo wooden house style, creating eco-friendly and sustainable environment.
The campus has been designed with the environment in mind. We have crafted a design concept that embraces nature, and provides a peaceful and pleasant atmosphere for students to learn in. The distinctive buildings made from earth and wood, provide cool and well-ventilated classrooms for all students. Students are encouraged actively involved in our recycling program.
We aspire to live an environmentally mindful life with a low carbon footprint and provide vegetarian, organic and local friendly food. We want to teach children as well as the community, how to live a life in harmony with nature and that showing respect for our environment enhances the quality of our live.
The campus design, by its layout makes the school simple to use and easy to maintain. Built-in eco-friendly features and systems, such as filtered-water processing, a bio gas converter (soon), jungle gym, tree house, hobbit house, fruits, trees, vegetables growing throughout the campus and our mini-garden enable us to teach by example, to show children how waste can be recycled for another use. We also teach children how to grow vegetables without pesticides.
Rumah Kecil’s Vision is to provide a good education which provides opportunities for children to be seen as individual learners and build a solid foundation not only for successful academic study, but also for peaceful and fulfilling way of life.
We believe that success in life is derived not only from a sharp intellect but also from the ability to communicate skilfully, overcome difficulties, know how to manage the emotion and how to make choices based on wisdom, compassion and understanding. We also aim to teach children as well as the community to care more about the nature and showing respect for our environment.
At Rumah Kecil School, we:
To secure our environment and to make sure your children safety we put several surveillance cameras. All of our staffs have passed First Aid Training and Disaster Management assisted by the official Bodies in Bali. Those activities held as our commitment to attain a good standard of security and disaster management. For your child safety, we also provide medical staff assistant.
Rumah Kecil use cloth diaper for kids below 2 or those who aren't potty train yet. This makes it easy to let the babies out of diapers as they get the feeling of wee and doodoo.
Highly absorbing paper diapers are petrochemical product. Using them for long time will let the skin absorb chemical substance harmful to the body. We believe paper diapers must be avoided as much as possible.
We can help your children to do toilet training during their time at Rumah Kecil.
Rumah Kecil is using joglo house to be the main building. A concrete structure or tiled floor takes away body heat causing the children to feel cold and tired. While wood, which adjusts to humidity and temperature as it breathes. is better for the body.
We used environmental friendly building material and designed Rumah kecil to be a comfortable place with a lot of sunshine and air.
Food plays a large part in building senses, emotions and thinking. We see food as an important part of children's growth. Here in Rumah kecil, we only serve healthy and safe food for the children.
We cook without MSG, we also use organic vegetables, small amount of meat, only sometimes we use chicken.
Rumah kecil provide homemade healthy food based in Japanese home cooking.
We use “Contact Book” to communicate with the parents of the children who are not old enough to express themselves with words or dialogue.
Contact Book will help both of us and parents to understand how the children are at Rumah Kecil and home. It also enables us to communicate better and make the children feel safe with a sense of assurance.
We ask the parents to make most of Contact Book as it will also serve as a record and memory of your child’s physical condition and growth.
Together with the home of children, we wish to watch over and encourage their growth.
We also regularly hold parent-teacher meeting at the beginning of school year, and end of semesters.
We avoid using chemicals for washing agents used in Rumah Kecil. We use organic soap, baking soda and soap nuts which are friendly to the environment and human body.
Trash is sorted and collected by Eco Bali, a company dedicated to achieving a cleaner environment by promoting waste separation and recycling.
We want to help make Bali a cleaner place by using, among other things, glasses made from used wine bottles. We want to start from what we can.
We use a special water purification system to ensure the safety of the children, and Bio-system water waste where we recycle parts of our water system and use it again to water the garden.
Our facilities includes a 8 meter x 5 meter swimming pool with 60 cm depth, suitable for children above 2 years old. We also have a tree house coming up soon.
We value outdoor play very much at our school. We believe nature is the best teacher and children can learn many things for example about the creatures, team work, problem solving and communication by being in the nature.
