Types of Programmes

We offer the following Programs at MMI-PIK: 

  • Toddler Class (6 months to 17 months)
    Toddler Class which features a wall-to-wall soft play area room and a two-hour program for both toddlers & their parents or caregiver. The Toddler Class teacher is a fully-trained Montessori Directress and Montessori materials are also used in class activities. Classes are held everyday and students have the option of going to school three times, four times or the full week.

     
  • Playgroup (18mths to 2 1/2 years)
    Children from 18 months to 2 1/2 years old will join our Playgroup. As children of this age group emerge from babyhood, they require both a stimulating and nourishing environment to develop their mental skills. Practical Life activities and manipulative play help to develop their motor skills, sense of order, independence, concentration, responsibility of self and environment. As they learn fastest through their senses, they will also be involved in activities that stimulate their learning senses (eg, Sensorial Activities). Early number concepts and language skills (e.g Phonics) will be taught in a fun and engaging way.

     
  • Nursery (2 1/2 years to 4 years)
    As a continuation from early learning experience from the Playgroup, children of this age group are able to work with more complex exercises within the Practical Life and Sensorial Activities range. Activities are mainly hands-on, fun and concrete at this stage and this sets the basis for later/further development in abstract concepts. Early mathematical concepts, word building skills and early writing skills are taught in the Nursery stage. Foundation is also laid at this stage for good work and social habits.

     
  • Kindergarten 1 (4 to 5 years)
    The Kindergarten group consists of children who are 4 -5 years. At this stage children are ready to take on more complex exercises in a more disciplined way. Mathematics, language, writing skills will be further developed in fun and manipulative ways. They will also be involved in early science and cultural activities (Botany, Zoology & History), which introduces the child to the natural environment around him.

     
  • Kindergarten 2 (5 to 6 years)
    This programme caters to children of 5-6 years in age. They will be taught Mathematics, Chinese and English that will prepare them well for formal primary schooling. At this stage, they will be able to embark on elementary reading on their own. Educational quizzes and games will be also be organised to challenge the children's brains to encourage them to think deeper into a subject. At the end of the year, a concert will be put up by the children for their graduation ceremony.
