M.Kids approach to early childhood education is practically driven which enables children to learn, navigate and explore. We are committed in using different materials in powerful ways to enhance learning and teaching. We also see technology as a natural tool in the learning process that supports and enhances the curriculum. Using Montessori materials is another medium to investigate, plan, control, create, publish, present, evaluate and reflect on learning to a variety of audiences face to face.
Our learning environment is designed to support the children’s developmental journey through our well collection of technical resources which includes:
- Reading corners with access to digital media
- Multimedia classrooms
- WIFI enabled classrooms
- Smart boards
- Grolier taking pen to develop language skills very quickly
- Digital resources to learn Phonics
- Language and accent training software
Our M-Kids center shares an engaging environment which ensures that learning happens outside through various ways like:
Reading sessions: Students are frequently taken out to the garden or they sit in open air for guided reading sessions
Role Play Areas: Role play is an essential part of learning in the early years. Our role play areas cover the entire range of activities that children might wish to engage in.
Physical Play Areas: Indoor and outdoor playgrounds are equipped with the latest equipment for physical education, social development and gross motor skill development. Whether indoor or outdoor, our play areas have sufficient space for children to run around and stretch their physical selves.
Sensory Development Areas: The Early Years section has dedicated areas and play equipments to ensure development and exploration of all the five senses.
Skill Development Areas: Each classroom and the school as a whole is equipped with toys and games selected to enhance core cognitive functioning – puzzles, construction corners, number games, obstacle courses and craft work for example.
Arts Centre: This area is specifically designed for the creative arts where children engage in music, drawing and painting (using different media), dancing, acting, storytelling and public speaking.
At M.Kids, the aim of our library is to support the curriculum, promote literacy, and foster a love of reading. We offer a wide range of reading materials and hard cover picture books which are child friendly and easy to use. Our library also supports the curriculum through the purchase of materials that are appropriate for the age and instructional needs of the staff. A variety of reading promotions (i.e. Book Week, Reading Week, Reading with Parents Day) aim to encourage and support literacy.
The most important goal of our school library is to encourage students to read and teach them about sound and phonics. The purpose of our library is to stimulate reading for pleasure, guide towards good reading habits and stimulate lifelong learning through the love of reading.
M. Kids is a home to a wonderful outdoor jungle Gym that is built to accommodate 25-30 children at a time. We have extra ordinary swings and sports equipment inside the arena for children to spend quality time in developing their fine and gross motor skills. We also have an indoor Ball Pool and Spring Jump to let the children play there, relax and feel enthusiastic during their leisure time.
