IMS creates an innovative, Dual-Language Montessori community that fosters the full development of each child.

Montessori First Steps (12-24 Months)

As your baby starts to walk and talk, IMS Montessori First Steps supports you and your child on a journey of discovery and accomplishment, guided by a team of Montessori experts who provide an immersive English and Putonghua language environment designed to ensure the optimal growth and development for your growing toddler. 


Grow and learn alongside your child. Our experienced Montessori teachers guide and support the joyful development of the very young toddler, and model Montessori guidance approaches for parents which nurture growing independence, concentration, and motivation as your child begins to walk and talk, absorbing both languages in the Montessori First Steps environment.


Get to know other parents. Two teachers work alongside a maximum of eight children and parent/caregiver pairs in the Montessori First Steps environment. Meet other like-minded parents and make friends for life.
