Mrs. Amanda

Before enrolling my firstborn in ISMILE, my husband and I didn’t think it was necessary for kids that young to be in school. It was at a time where covid was high and we found ourselves unsure how to occupy our toddler’s time and energy. As covid dragged on and cut us off from social interactions, we decided to enroll Danica in ISMILE offline school the first chance we could. It was a challenging time for her to get used to a new environment, new people and also separation from us. However as time passed, we saw our little girl maturing and coming out of her shell. She became more confident in herself and took less time to adjust to new surroundings. I owe this to the patient support and guidance of the loving teachers in ISMILE, being there every step of the way. After seeing what a difference starting school young can make, my second daughter has been in ISMILE since toddlerhood, and enjoying it immensely.

Nafas To Install Clean Air Zones in 7 iSmile Pre-School Campuses in Indonesia

As pollution in Jakarta and many other Indonesian cities continues to get worse, Nafas has been appointed as the air quality partner for iSmile Family of Schools in Indonesia and is tasked with bringing healthy air quality to 7 campuses in Permata Hijau, Menteng, Kelapa Gading, Pantai Indah Kapuk, P. Antasari (for Alam Atelier & BazGym) and Bandung. As part of the partnership, Nafas will be providing healthy air quality management, analytics & reporting as well as leading educational programs for parents across iSmile, iShine, Alam Atelier and BazGym  to continue to raise awareness about air pollution and public health.

Over 800 students attend iSmile Family of Schools, one of the top pre-schools in Jakarta, Bandung and Bali. The dedication of iSmile administration to providing the optimal learning environment for its students extends to ensuring that healthy indoor air quality levels are always maintained. 

For their schools that already have a Clean Air Zone, Nafas successfully reduced indoor air pollution by over 80% in classrooms at the Kelapa Gading campus in April 2024.  Unhealthy indoor air quality in schools provides a sub-optimal learning environment for children and long term exposure to PM2.5 reduces concentration, focus and can impair cognitive development. Nafas even published an article about this – The Smog Effect: How Air Quality Could Be Affecting Test Scores.

Clean Air Zones by Nafas are a subscription based B2B service which provides companies with air quality diagnostics, healthy air management, data analytics and real-time reporting of indoor pollution levels. The end to end service is the first of its kind in Indonesia, and already serves over 100 clients in offices, schools, small businesses and residential locations.
