"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- Founder of DIR Floortime
Jakarta Child Development Center (JCDC) is the first child development center based on DIR Floortime approach in Indonesia.
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.
DIR Floortime is a comprehensive framework to promote an individual's development and build successively higher levels of social, emotional, and intellectual capacities through a respectful, playful, joyful, and engaging process. The model highlights the power of relationships and emotional connections to fuel development.
The objectives of the DIR Model are to build healthy foundations for social, emotional, and intellectual capacities rather than focusing exclusively on skills and isolated behaviors.
The D describes development from the perspective of the individual, where they are and where they are headed. Understanding the unique developmental process means allowing space for each person to be respected and guided in their own personal developmental journey.
The I describes the unique ways each person takes in, regulates, responds to, and comprehends the world around them.
The R describes how relationships fuel our development. Humans are social beings and relationships are a key to our development. DIR harnesses the key affective (emotional) aspect of these relationships to promote development.
