IMS Programmes

IMS’ integrated curriculum meets the different development needs for the growing person, giving your child the opportunity to explore their own passions, while guiding them to develop the skills they need to be successful in school and in life.

All of our Montessori programmes fully support a natural, and developmentally appropriate approach to learning that is intrinsically motivating, and encourages a life characterized by the joyous pursuit of knowledge.

  • Foundation Groups (2 - 3)
    The two-year-old is a little person! The child at this age is becoming fiercely independent and is attempting new things
  • Casa dei Bambini (3 - 6)
    The two-year-old is a little person! The child at this age is becoming fiercely independent and is attempting new things
  • Elementary (6 - 12)
    At around the age of six, the child’s mind begins to expand beyond the walls of the Casa Dei Bambini…
  • Student Life
    Experiential & entrepreneurial learning extends beyond the classroom in the makerspace, science & design lab, as well as the market garden.
  • Summer Fun
    The IMS Summer Fun Programme at Stanley Campus, enriches learning, engage children’s creative minds and gets them moving. Our 6-week summer programme for children 3 – 11 is to be announced.
  • Outcomes: Montessori Works!
    Montessori prepares children to succeed and prosper no matter what path they choose. Montessori kids make up such a large percentage of the top levels of business and the arts that some joke about a “Montessori Mafia”!

Foundation group (2-3)

Experiencing success is critically important to your toddler’s developing self-concept and self-esteem. The very young child craves language to be able to communicate and describe the world. Activities in the bilingual Foundation Groups encourage your child to explore creatively, in a cosy, language-rich and highly interactive environment – the best preparation for learning.

Casa dei Bambini (3-6)

At this age, children absorb information like a sponge! They learn to read and write in English and Chinese, and absorb mathematical and scientific principles. This is the most critical time to nurture your child’s natural curiosity and lay the foundation for all future development. The Casa dei Bambini classroom offers a creative, hands-on, interactive environment where the young child can explore, experiment and succeed.

Elementary (6-12)

The elementary child begins to look to others as a valuable learning resource, and to learn and reinforce knowledge socially. English- and Putonghua- speaking teachers encourage debate, discussion and collaboration in project teams working on things that are critically important to them – from establishing their own business, to writing and performing their own play.

Student Life

Experiential & entrepreneurial learning extends beyond the classroom in the makerspace, science & design lab, as well as the market garden. Music, Art, Tech & Sport lessons enrich the all round development of students, with specialist teachers consulting on projects & community service.

Summer Fun

The IMS Summer Fun Programme at Stanley Campus, enriches learning, engage children’s creative minds and gets them moving. Our 6-week summer programme for children 3 – 11 is to be announced.

Outcome : Montessori Works!

Montessori prepares children to succeed and prosper no matter what path they choose. Montessori kids make up such a large percentage of the top levels of business and the arts that some joke about a “Montessori Mafia”!

“Coming to Montessori, the kids learn at their own pace, they can allow any new learning to sink in, and they absorb the information and internalize it; fully comprehending what they learnt. There is a sense of empowerment in their own education.”

Why Montessori at IMS

IMS’ passionate teachers guide the child through three successive, developmentally appropriate cycles, spanning 10 years of learning from age 2-12. The opportunity to choose your own activity, to move and work freely within strict ground rules, and to work for long blocks of time without interruption are key to motivated, deep learning.

The Casa dei Bambini and Elementary incorporate mixed-age classrooms, another way in which traditionally Montessori approaches are reflective of the latest research into best practices in education.

Add IMS’ bilingual approach, and your child can enjoy the best of all learning environments!

Dual-Language

At IMS, the children are completely immersed in a truly dual-language Montessori environment. Each classroom is guided by two teachers, one a Putonghua-speaker and one an English-speaker who exclusively speak their native language to the children. The children are exposed to speaking, listening, reading and writing from the earliest ages in both English and Chinese, very naturally. Children are constantly picking up new vocabulary from their teacher and their peers in both languages.
In the Elementary programme, children attend separate small group Chinese lessons based on their ability. These lessons allow them to learn new vocabulary and skills to reinforce later in their dual-language classroom.

Motivated Learning

Children learn more and invest themselves deeply in their work when they are able to make choices. They learn that their choices really matter.
A Montessori child is constantly striving to achieve success in increasingly difficult pursuits. Freedom to choose allows each child to discover their own needs, interests and abilities. And that they can succeed.
