History of KBITA Kids
In 1992 - 2002
Based on 10 years observation, 1992- 2002, the number of street babies / children under five year old exploited by adults increase significantly. Yayasan AULIA could not do much instead of suggesting parents not to bring their children to the street.

In 2003 - 2007
The background of Early Childhood Education establishment is due to lots of young children coming to our study group activity. They actually just came and played with their sister / brother at our learning center. The mothers of the children, requested us to teach their children to write. "please teach my child alphabet or anything you can," said the mothers.

The number of children who joined our study group increased even though it was targeted for elementary school children. We were overwhelmed because we had to provide time as well as lessons for the young children.

Considering the phenomenon, Yayasan AULIA wanted to do something. Together with the community, we identified and analyzed how important Early Childhood Education is in the community. We found some points and result of the analysis. There was no playground for young children in the neighbourhood and high cost for kindergarten so the people cannot afford it. We can easily find young children play around without parent control such as on the street, in the dirty environment, and on the riverside.

Based on the analysis result, in August 2007, Yayasan AULIA established ECE KBITA Kids (Early Childhood Education, Our Children's Group to Play & Learn).

The meaning of KBITA Kids word
The name KBITA was suggested by the mothers in our slum areas. KBITA Kids is an acronym of Kelompok Bermain & Belajar Anak Kita (Our Children's Group to Play & Learn). The word Kbita itself comes from Sundanese language, which mean "want" and we expect KBITA Kids ECE can bring motivation to parents in fulfilling excellent education for their children at early age.
