OUR MALAYSIA CENTRES
Here at Julia Gabriel International, we know how important it is for children to learn in a conducive environment. We take care and pride to create favourable physical environments in each of our centres that encourages creativity and fun with the coming together of parents, mentors and students.
Our first centre for Julia Gabriel International in Malaysia is centrally located in a corner-lot bungalow along Jalan Bukit Pantai in Bangsar, an affluent residential district on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. The centre, which houses Julia Gabriel Centre and Chiltern House Preschool under one roof, is set in a serene suburb with a beautifully landscaped outdoor area complete with a playground and sand area for play, exuding a delightfully homely environment.
Our second centre on the other hand is a stand-alone Chiltern House Preschool, situated in CITTA Mall, a family-friendly open-air shopping mall in Ara Damansara, an established residential township in Petaling Jaya, Selangor that promotes green living. Our facilities, including an in-door playground, take up part of the mall’s third floor.
Marking our milestone for our tenth year in Malaysia in 2016 is the establishment of our third centre in the upscale township of Mont' Kiara in Kuala Lumpur. With the township's high number of expatriate residents, the centre - which is home to Julia Gabriel Centre and the all-new Mandarin enrichment centre and kindergarten, Chengzhu - plays an essential role in catering to the demands for a Mandarin-rich environment with a strong progressive curriculum. The new centre features a state-of-the-art in-door playground and an exquisite outdoor playground set within the quaint, lush greenery of Gateway Kiaramas. Laced with an interior that promotes natural and organic elements all around, this third centre is the pride of Julia Gabriel International.
Each room in our centres are carefully fitted with lots of light and ventilation, filled with children-friendly furniture and inspirational toys, and of course, maintained to the strictest levels of hygiene standards to ensure safe environments for our children, parents and mentors alike.
A pride and joy with children, teachers and adults alike is our BookRoom. The BookRoom came into being in 1993 from a desire to instil a love of literature into the hearts of our little ones. The BookRoom is named after poet Eleanor Farjeon’s special book, “The Little BookRoom”. There are over 10,000 lovingly handpicked story books by a team of coordinators whose dream is to make every visit to the BookRoom an imaginative and magical experience.
The flagship centre for Julia Gabriel Education in Singapore is located centrally in Forum The Shopping Mall, a popular family-friendly shopping mall along Orchard Road. Their facilities take an entire floor of the Forum Mall. They have a new centre in Tampines Mall, recently opened.
OTHER OVERSEAS CENTRES
All overseas partners – in Jakarta, and Shanghai – made the initial approach to Julia Gabriel because they wanted to replicate what Julia Gabriel does in their home cities. Julia Gabriel continues to work with overseas partners to maintain quality control through teacher-training, seconding of teachers from Singapore to start programmes in our overseas centres, staff training, overseeing curriculum material and supplying centres with BookRooms resources.
