ISMS programs encompass Preschool and Primary School (K – Year 6), as well as an active Infant Community; all with equal emphasis on academic, social and emotional development.
We invite you to explore the breadth of programs offered at ISMS. Learn about the characteristics of the child within each Stage (0 – 3, 3 – 6 and 6 – 12 years), the corresponding prepared environment and the curriculum (Montessori and National Syllabus) that is delivered.
Importantly, learn how the curriculum is delivered. The content structure, for each of our current programs outlined below, includes questions and answers about subject matter, approach to teaching and the materials used to support the transition from concrete to abstract learning.
