Improving Kindergarten Teachers and Principal’s capacity in Demak and Grobogan Municipality, Central Java Province


On the period of March until April, ars86care Foundation had successfully held a Teacher’s Training Program in Demak and Grobogan Municipality involving over 287 teachers within several District including Mranggen, Guntur, Tegowanu, Karangawen, Gubug, and Tanggungharjo.


Our Program would not have been successful if it wasn’t for the generous donation from the EIGHT for AGAPE Foundation and in cooperation with Al-Jabr Islamic School. Both partners are in line with ars86care Foundation to increase teachers’ capacity in teaching.


The idea of this program is to elevate the teacher’s knowledge of teaching method and have them certified at the end of the course. Ars86care Foundation worked with several different key speakers for this event and other organization to conduct a 3-day training. This event was fully supported by the Education and Cultural Authorities, Demak and Grobogan Municipality, Central Java Province and the IGTKI (teachers community) in Mranggen, Karangawen, Guntur and Tegowanu District. The overwhelming community support also becomes a key factor to the establishment of this program.





In the period of March to April, three big training were conducted in different areas :


  • 20 - 22 March 2018 Teacher’s Training Program in Mranggen District, Demak Municipality
  • 10 - 12 April 2018 Teacher’s Training Program in Guntur District, Demak Municipality
  • 11- 13 April 2018 Teacher’s Training Program in Tegowanu District, Grobogan Municipality


The event involved several key speaker which cater to the major topics, including:


  • Philosophy Material, Leadership, and Montessori practice
  • Strengthened Education K13 and inquiry
  • Accreditation and Teacher/Principal’s competent 
  • Practical skills and interactive skills – workshop on Creative Educational Tools. It includes creating one tool from reused materials.


Each speaker had different session to conduct, with different materials. As a partner of ars86care Foundation, Al-Jabr Islamic School provided an introduction to the Montessori practice, which could easily be adapted by Kindergarten. Along with that, they also kindly gave handouts with detailed materials as well as supply kits for the teachers to take home.


Each teacher participated gave out a tremendous energy towards each session, and were very keen on learning more and more. For them, the learning experience is something they could take back to their classroom and also share with their neighboring schools.
