"All children have within them the potential to be great kids. It is our job to create a great world where this potential can flourish"
- Stanley Greenspan, MD


Jakarta Child Development Center (JCDC) is the first child development center based on DIR Floortime approach. We strive to be the trusted partner of parents when dealing with parenting challenges. We integrate multidisciplinary specialists to work together to help children and their families.

With DIR (Developmental, Individual-differences, & Relationship-based) Floortime approach, JCDC has a strong view that all children deserve the opportunity to learn in ways that promote the most of their strengths and abilities as well as empower them in overcoming their weaknesses.


APPROACH & VALUES



DIR Floortime was developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan to provide a foundational framework for understanding human development. It explains the critical role of social-emotional development starting at birth and continuing throughout the lifespan. It also provides a framework for understanding how each person individually perceives and interacts with the world differently.

With its comprehensive framework to promote an individual's development, DIR Floortime also builds successively higher levels of social, emotional, and intellectual capacities in each child through a respectful, playful, joyful, and engaging process. The model highlights the power of relationships and emotional connections to fuel development. Furthermore, DIR Floortime can be applied to all children, included children with special need or other related needs.

NADIA EMANUELLA GIDEON, M.PSI., PSIKOLOG
Founder & Managing Director

Ms. Nadia earned her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Tarumanagara University and a Master's Degree in Clinical Child Psychologist from University of Indonesia. She fell in love with DIR Floortime approach and became an advanced provider of DIR Floortime from ICDL USA. To always keep up with the development of world psychology, Ms. Nadia has attended various international-certi?ed trainings : brain gym for children, hypnotherapy for children, behavior modi?cation, art therapy for children, picture exchange communication system (communication technic for non-verbal children), Bal-A-Vis-X (training exercises to keep attention and focus for children), and many more.

THERESIA RUSTANDI
Co-Founder

Ms. Theresia has developed several premium daycares in Jakarta and has been nurturing her interests in child development programs since the 1990s. She has helped the development of Dharmacitta Daycare Center and founded Keenkids Children Center and HighReach Premium Daycare.

"It is getting harder to become parents, especially parents with special-needs children. We are hoping JCDC can help many parents coping with their parenting challenges. Different ages, different problems. As parents, we need to always update our parenting skills. Remember when our kids learned to walk ? It was very tiring to keep up with their energy. However, when they already master the walk, other challenges arise. It is a never-ending process with new challenges and achievements. How about the children ? They do have their own problems as well : social pressures, LGBT, drugs, love, sex, etc. It is also a never-ending process for children. We do hope JCDC can be the parent's and children's best friends to talk and seek solutions to their daily life."

YUTE SASMITRA
Co-Founder

Ms. Yute has always been passionate about matters surrounding children and children's mental health. As a mother herself, she believes that a good support system is much needed in coping with various challenges in each child's stages of development.

"That is why by co-founding JCDC, we want to provide parents with a good support system and a safe environment to grow and learn together and eventually to have the tools to help our children bloom to their fullest abilities. Not only to parents, but we also want to provide children with a safe place to express their struggles and stories of their life and to help them grow as unique individuals. Happy parents, happy child!"
