SMS offers education in a world-class environment using the Montessori Method.

This approach is a hands-on method enabling children to become active learners. 

SMS is a Bi-lingual school, with Indonesian as its primary language of instruction,

and English as its second language. We provide a quality education that empowers students to become confident students and responsible members of society.

"Education is the key to success in life, and teachers make a lasting impact on the lives of their students."

-Solomon Ortiz 


The goal of the Singaraja Montessori School is to provide a stimulating environment where children can explore and learn in without fear. We at SMS aim to make learning exciting for children by allowing them to explore without limitations. Because much of the learning process is self-directed, children can gain a sense of independence and confidence in their abilities much faster than in a traditional school setting.


Montessori children learn from one another as much as from adults- and collaborate rather than compete for honors and grades. Children learn best by doing. While manipulating materials children are learning and not only "playing" as perceived by most adults. It is this philosophy that inspired us to open a Montessori school.


Extracurricular activities are; Traditional and Modern Dance, Music lessons, Speech and Drama classes as well as sports and swimming classes.

"When you have solved the problem of controlling the attention of the child, you have solved the entire problem of its education." 

- Maria Montessori 


The headmaster of the Singaraja Montessori School is Poonam Nanwani, a highly trained and officially certified Montessori teacher who graduated from the Indian Montessori Centre, Bangalore, India.

She continued her training with The North American Montessori Centre in Canada. Poonam went on to work at several international schools including the Forest International School, Mareil-Marly, France where she worked as a Pre-Primary teacher and IPC Coordinator.

Poonam also worked at The Netherlands International School in Jakarta, the Gandhi Memorial International School Jakarta and the Gandhi Montessori School in Jakarta.

At the Singaraja Montessori School classroom, Poonam is assisted by Widia Helena, a graduate from the Pendidikan Ganesha University in Singaraja.
