children in Jakarta



With the younger children we sometimes organize playdates and small playgroups within the Nordic Club community, mostly divided by the different countries to give the kids (and parents) the opportunity to meet and socialize in their own respective languages. Ask your country rep if your country has its own group or start a new one!

Jakarta is not exactly a city teeming with playgrounds or outdoor spaces for children to play. But there are some indoor playgrounds around. Below is a list of some indoor playgrounds in South Jakarta:

Tamani Cafe - Jl Kemang Raya 5, Kemang
On the 4th floor of this building there is a coffee-shop and a playground, where kids can play and parents can easily keep an eye on the little ones.  Also, it is great to have family snack, or do a baby group in the place.  The ticket for the playground entitles to an ice-cream cup!

Playground 72 - Jl Kemang Timur 72
This is a popular playground for older kids, since it's outside and it gets full of kids after 3pm, after school time.  On weekends it gets very full sometimes, especially on Sundays.

Circuz - Pondok Indah Mall II - 3rd floor
This is a small but cozy playground for small kids.  During weekends it gets a bit crowded and lacks space. 

PlayMall in Senayan City - 4th floor
This playground is inside a kids activity center, where they hold small classes and also painting classes during weekends.  It is located in an ample space, great for older kids and there is a lovely carrousel.

Gymboree - Pondok Indah Mall I - inside Kids Station
This can be used as a playground, but they also hold activities classes and music classes.  During times with no activity classes, parents can pay per hour for the kids to play in the stations.

All the above mentioned playgrounds require that child be supervised if under 3 or 4 years old.  Some playgrounds also require socks


There is a myriad of choices to make when it comes to selecting a playgroup or a preschool for your young children. You will probably survey quite a few before finding the one that fits your specific needs. Here are a few well-known English speaking schools & playgroups.
