The Montessori Method
Here’s what you will find at IMS:
- The recognition that children have an innate drive that naturally inspires them to reach their potential
Montessori philosophy recognises that the inherent love of learning is stimulated when children are given opportunities to engage in meaningful activities with the proper balance of autonomy and guidance from specially trained teachers.
- A nurturing environment carefully prepared by a fully certified Montessori educator
All IMS Montessori teachers are AMI trained. In every classroom, one teacher is an English speaker, and one is a Putonghua speaker.
- A comprehensive assortment of Montessori learning materials in each classroom
Students use Montessori learning materials at each phase of their education to learn increasingly complex concepts. These hands-on tools are concrete complements to written materials and other classroom activities. (See our Parent Education page here to read more on Montessori classroom materials.)
- Strong Parent-School partnerships
At IMS, we believe parents are partners in creating home environments that provide opportunities for the child to continue their learning and development as citizens of the world. IMS holds educational, curriculum, and enrichment events throughout the school year for parents and caregivers.
