"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.


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.

"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."
