Culvating Curious Minds

Born from a seed of wonder, Caterpillar School Bali sprouted two years ago to nurture blossoming minds in an enriching, child-centered early learning centre. Today, our roots weave a vibrant community of dedicated educators, supportive families, and curious little explorers. Together, we watch laughter bloom, imaginations take flight, and tiny caterpillars transform into confident butterflies, ready to embrace the world beyond.

A touch of history

Our humble beginnings 

Caterpillar's journey originated with a small group of four children gathered in a living room. As the pandemic ushered in the era of online learning, the decision was made to take charge of a child's education and establish a home school. With the support of a thriving community facing similar challenges, a home school was set up, with an office space transformed into a classroom and the recruitment of the first Caterpillar teacher. This became not only a learning experience for the children but also a social one, addressing the lack of interaction brought on by the pandemic.

As the pandemic persisted longer than expected, word spread about the home school, leading to an influx of new students. The need for a larger space became evident, prompting the search for an ideal learning environment. Eventually, the current villa, a serene oasis in the heart of Bali, was discovered—a beautiful space with fruit trees, flowers, and the soothing sounds of nature. This villa provided a perfect learning space for both children and teachers.

The move to this new location marked significant milestones, from toddlers experiencing grass for the first time to two-year-olds forming connections with peers. The smiles on the children's faces as they transitioned to this tranquil villa are etched in the memory of those who witnessed the evolution of Caterpillar School.
