The 3 to 6-year old child undergoes a process of self-construction. The application of the Montessori philosophy and the specifically designed Montessori equipment aids the child’s ability to absorb knowledge and continue on this path of knowledge.
There are four main areas in the pre-primary program: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, and Mathematics. MMA also emphasizes on Creative Arts, Music, Science, Geography and Cultural Studies. Assimilation of one’s own culture is the child’s central developmental drive in the first plane of development. MMA’s Pre-Primary environment serves this drive abundantly, bringing the world to the child. Globes, maps, songs, land forms, collections of pictures of life in different cultures and much more is offered at MMA with the aim of helping the child to grow as an individual appreciating the larger context of his or her world.
