Other facilities

Cherie Hearts Permas Jaya is a centre that is well equipped to facilitate the holistic growth of your child. Besides our spacious classrooms, we also have a child-friendly library where our little Cherians develop a love for reading. 

Also available are the art room, dance room and music room where children are encouraged to get creative and express themselves. Meal times at the dining room are always fun – we teach children the importance of having a balanced and nutritious diet with menus that are specially created by our nutritionist. 


Our curriculum is carefully crafted by our in-house team of Early Childhood and Child Development specialists. We believe that development should be holistic and thus, our curriculum is one that promotes development in all areas – physical, cognitive, emotional, social and language. 

While our curriculum functions as a whole for infants 2 months to preschoolers aged 6, it can be categorized into 3 parts:

  • My First Journey Curriculum – Infant Care
  • Jump Start Years Curriculum – Playgroup 1 & 2
  • Bridging Years Curriculum – Nursery, Kindergarten 1 & 2

Activity based learning

Most children are naturally active and would be bored out of their minds if they were expected to sit down and study for hours. At Cherie Hearts Permas Jaya, we have a good balance of active and passive learning. 

Children learn concepts and absorb lessons better when they are actively engaged in the learning process. Thus, we make sure to incorporate games, activities and materials that will grab their attention to facilitate their growth and development. 

At our centre, even playtime is learning time. Children learn concepts and skills such as sharing and communication when they play. As such, we aim to provide an environment that is conducive for learning at all times. 

Well trained teachers

Our team of dedicated teachers are well trained to care and provide the best learning experiences for your children. All teachers are also equipped with basic first aid knowledge. You can be rest assured that your child will be well taken care of at all times at Cherie Hearts Permas Jaya.

Fun Facts about Permas Jaya, Johor Bahru

Permas Jaya, with the official name of Bandar Baru Permas Jaya, is a suburb in Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia. It has about 40,000-45,000 residents. The Permas Jaya Bridge connects it with Kampung Baru Bakar Batu, Taman Sentosa and downtown Johor Bahru

The Second Permas Jaya Bridge is completed and has helped to reduce traffic jams. The new Eastern Dispersal Link has also been completed and opened for public on 1 April 2012.

The residential areas are divided into sections, with the section numbers numbering from 1 to 15 and beyond, based on the phases when the town was built. The roads in the residential areas are further named with a “/” and another representing number, which means 1/13 is a road found in the residential area 1.

Permas Jaya has a 9-hole golf course and residential condominiums. It also has a sports and recreational complex and a go-kart circuit. Permas Point used to be the main shopping and leisure complex with a cinema and bowling alley but has been closed since 1999. 

It also boasts a sports complex which has a tennis court, swimming complex and library. Currently, Jaya Jusco is the main shopping centre in Permas Jaya. Permas Jaya Management has built a new Permas Mall to attract new businesses. 

Permas Jaya is a popular choice for middle class professionals and business people (mainly local Chinese and Singaporeans) as well as a small number of expatriates to live in because of its strategic location between Johor Bahru and Pasir Gudang shipbuilding yards within an area with a population of more than 300,000. 

There is a bit of a night life and good restaurants, some with live entertainment. There are also many Chinese styled cafes as well as the Jusco Permas Jaya, which is one of the earliest Jusco branches in Johor Bahru.

Little known is the Vinayagar temple here which sits on hill with a panoramic view of Johor Bahru and Singapore. The shrine is built around a large rock which is shaped like the head of an elephant. The rock was hidden when the area was forested and was discovered by a Hindu woman, guided by the premonitions and visions she had of Goddess Durga.

The temple draws a large and diverse crowd of devotees, Hindu, Sikh and Chinese during the annual Vinayagar Chathurthi festival. A Kavadi procession starting from the Senibong beach and a Thimithi ritual are the main events during the festival.
