The MIMK Nido program caters to children ages 2 to 3 years, preparing children for kindergarten and supporting their transition to the Casa program in a nurturing environment.
The Nido program at MIMK prepares toddlers for the Casa program through nurturing their social, emotional, and cognitive growth. With a thoughtfully designed curriculum and a supportive environment, it fosters confidence and readiness for the next phase of Montessori education, catering to each child's specific developmental needs.
Assessment And Tracking
For our Nido program, we provide regular progress reports every 10 weeks to keep you informed about your child's development. Our reports cover practical life skills, sensorial exploration, language development, and social-emotional growth. Our teachers offer detailed observations and insights, highlighting your child's progress and areas where they may need extra support. These reports also give you the opportunity to discuss your child's development with the teacher and address any questions or concerns you may have. We believe in open communication between parents and teachers to ensure your child's success.
The MIMK CASA Program aligns with the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) standards and emphasizes the holistic development of children through the Montessori approach for this sensitive period of learning from ages 3-6.
Through social and emotional development, learners gain essential skills for overall well-being and success. Self-awareness, empathy, and positive relationships lay the foundation for healthy social interactions, emotional regulation, and effective communication. These skills benefit current and future relationships in various contexts. The Montessori approach recognizes the importance of social and emotional development, empowering children to navigate the social world with confidence, empathy, and resilience.
Assessment And Tracking
For our Casa program, we believe in keeping parents informed about their child's progress. That's why we provide progress reports every half term, giving you a comprehensive understanding of your child's development. These reports cover various areas, including practical life skills, sensorial exploration, language, mathematics, cultural studies, art, physical education, and social-emotional growth. Our teachers carefully assess each child's progress, using clear levels of Introduced, Practiced, Mastered, or Needs More to indicate their understanding and proficiency in each area. Alongside these reports, we also conduct parent interviews to discuss your child's progress, strengths, areas of growth, and strategies for ongoing support both at home and in the classroom. We value open communication and collaboration between parents and educators to ensure your child's success and well-rounded development.
Please note: Casa students will not be napping at the school during school hours
