[Review] Curious Academy (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

I am an advocate of Glenn Doman's teaching methods.  If you have been following my blog, you would have known that AJ is a walking testimony of Glenn Doman's teaching.

When we were in Kuala Lumpur, we were honoured to get invited to check out the Curious Academy - A Glenn Doman Learning Centre, the first in Malaysia.


Curious Academy is housed in a double-storey bungalow (10,000 sqft) in Damansara Heights.  When we entered the premise, we were met with an impressive outdoor playground structure.



There's mini rock climbing wall too!

As we walked around the premise, we got more & more impressed.  The centre has a mini rock-climbing wall & a pool for the very little ones!


It's a salt chlorinated pool!

We were greeted by a small library (Curious Shop) as we entered into the centre.  Yup! The shelves were filled with Glenn & Douglas Doman's books & their educational tools.

Bits of Encyclopaedic Knowledge

Math & Reading Kits

Yes, waste no time, start your new born early.  Learning is not a chore!

There is also an indoor playground for the younger ones or in case it rains.





The Centre Supervisor then brought us to the gym, where AJ had some fun.

This is no ordinary monkey bar

This is a brachiating bar,
specially purchased from the Institute for the Achievement of Human Potential

Kitchen for cookery class

Children use the lower one, how thoughtful!


Stairs leading to the 2nd level


Dance Studio

Music Studio




How about this kid's toilet?

2 doors to the exit - 1 for the child; 1 for the adult

We can't comment on the quality of the classes as we did not have the luxury of time to go for any trial lessons.  But, in terms of facilities, I would say it is very up-to-the-mark.

Glenn Doman (deceased), the founder of The Institute for the Achievement of Human Potential, had spent the last 60 years studying about children & had proven that there is an intimate relationship between mobility & intelligence. Every child has the potential to be exceptional if given the opportunity & that learning begins as soon as the child is born. 

By introducing visual, auditory and tactile stimulation while combining it with physical activities in a fun and safe environment, the goal of The Curious Academy is to be able to nurture a confident, happy & well-rounded child & be physically, intellectually & socially excellent.

If you live in Kuala Lumpur & have young children with you, do call up The Curious Academy to check out their trial classes.  You never know how much it may help your child until you give it a try.

We were invited to visit The Curious Academy when we were in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in Dec 2013.  All opinions are my own.

    1. Ya, we were impressed that they followed GD's guidelines very closely. They have gotten the sole distributorship from GD S'pore to market full pledge in M'sia. Read GD's book on How To Teach Your Baby To Read will help you to kick start the cards on James. :D
