Sri Kayangan Montessori
About Our School
Our preschool commenced operations in June, 2000, known as “The Children’s Playhouse”, in the surburb of Section 9 in Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia. Within 4 years, another branch was opened in Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam plus growing into elementary levels to establish Sekolah Sri Kayangan as a separate entity. In 2011, both schools merged as Sri Kayangan Montessori and has since grown from strength to strength.
