Loving Environment

Loving Environment

At I M Smart we endeavour to create an educational, yet loving environment in which your child can discover the wonders of our natural world.

The prepared and orderly environment

Children are grouped in babies (3 months to 18 months), toddlers (18 months to 3 years) and pre-school (3 years to 6 years) environments.

This aspires the children to work together, develops sense of responsibility in older children and motivates the younger ones to achieve.

Environment is arranged according to the main subject areas – mathematics, language, science, history, geography, music, social skills etc) and children are free to move around and work with different pieces of materials.

Children learn through all five senses, and not just through listening, watching or reading. Learning is done at own pace and per own choice of materials, resulting in motivation and self-discipline.


Early Learning and the Montessori method

Learning is a process we go through from the day we are born till the day we die.
