International Montessori Myanmar(IMM)
IMM Montessori Myanmar, Pho Sein Road, Yangon, Myanmar
IMM Montessori Myanmar is one of the first international Kindergarten in Yangon to follow the Montessori Method. At the Center, we endeavor to create as many opportunities as possible to allow the children to explore, create, build, touch, listen and watch. The curriculum is centered around various art work, creative play increasing vocabulary and phonics. Language practice is encouraged through didactic Montessori equipment, storytelling and discussions. Besides these activities, students acquire knowledge of Mathematics and Science, to produce strong basics and awareness of the world they live in.
We are truly passionate about educating young children and have found out through over 20 years of experience that early education, through the Montessori method, has been proven to exponentially advance a child’s future education. The early years form the basic foundation, shaping both the child’s character and his or her desire to learn. More than intellectual stimulation, children must learn to live and socialize with their fellow human beings as part of a considerate and mutually supportive community. In this role, pre-schools carry an important responsibility to complement the care and support provided by parents and family.
We encourage the children to have confidence to express themselves in every way such as singing and movement. Classroom learning is inquiry-based and student-centered. Teachers seek to work co-operatively and collaboratively with the children, respecting the unique abilities that each learner brings into the learning environment. We are confident that the experiences gained at IMM will provide real assistance to each child by building confidence and providing meaningful experiences.
Our program develops the early learning skills and experience important for the children as a whole. Through practical life skills and the development of the 5 senses we teach them the necessary skills to develop their confidence in completing the given tasks.
Apart from that, we also focus on their academic skills such as speaking, listening, reading and writing. For mathematics we see the importance of children learning. For science we encourage the children to be aware of the environment and nature around them. Developing gross motor skills is one of the most important aspects for young children. Our timetable is equally divided for play and recreation. The ability to express their thoughts and feelings, for young children, show mainly in the arts and crafts they produce, therefore we integrate arts into all our subjects taught.
