IMA’s early childhood classrooms engage in lessons designed to promote physical and emotional independence. In a calm and peaceful classroom environment, children learn practical life and self-care skills and use concrete materials to practice early math and language concepts. Monthly project-based themed units provide a structure for integrating all content areas. Lessons are sequenced to meet students’ individual needs and developmental milestones.
In students' Pre-K year, parents are invited to select a focused language model that best fits with their child's needs and language acquisition goals. To prepare for kindergarten success, students spend the morning engaging with multidisciplinary units of inquiry, focusing on Pre-K learning standards and practicing fine motor development.
