Our history

Co-founder Karen Wong’s journey to establishing Brain Champs Kindergarten is a tale of passion meeting purpose. Originally from the marketing field, her search for a suitable school for her son in the early 2000s left her wanting more. Unimpressed with the available options, Karen decided to step into the world of early childhood education. Driven by her newfound mission, she pursued a Diploma in Montessori Pedagogy, drawn to its child-centered approach.

The Montessori philosophy, formulated by Dr. Maria Montessori, emphasizes not just hands-on, self-paced learning, but also academic rigor. It encourages children to actively engage in their learning process, fostering independence, critical thinking, and a deep love for learning. This approach holistically nurtures the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive aspects of a child’s development.

Since 2007, Brain Champs Kindergarten, inspired by Karen Wong’s vision, has been nurturing 2 to 6-year-olds. Our curriculum, blending Montessori philosophy with the national curriculum, readies students for Chinese primary school, focusing on intellectual and character development.

We prioritise an exceptional early learning experience, combining Montessori methods with the Malaysian curriculum for comprehensive growth. Our emphasis on safety, convenience, and a nurturing environment ensures a secure and adaptable setting for families. Located in Bandar Utama, we cater to local communities, encouraging imagination, curiosity, and cultural respect, along with personalized care for holistic child development.


Looking forward, our commitment to innovation continues. We aim to equip students with the skills and qualities necessary for academic and life success. Brain Champs Kindergarten is more than a school; it’s a place of inspiration and preparation for life’s journey.

Our graduates

Children graduate Brain Champs programmes with the skills they need to succeed in private or public school. In surveys, kindergarten and primary school teachers report that Brain Champs graduates are enthusiastic learners who are socially and academically ready for the years ahead.


Our kindergarten stems from a personal journey seeking the ideal educational setting for my two children. Rooted in a Montessori background, we are committed to providing a comprehensive foundation that focuses on English, Mandarin, and Malay. Our tailored curriculum ensures preschoolers are not only well-versed in these languages but also well-prepared as they step up to primary school or private education, equipped with the skills and confidence needed for future academic success.
