Primary ( 3-6 yrs)
IMA’s innovative multi-lingual Montessori Primary program is currently offered in four languages: Chinese, English, Japanese (Eastgate only) and Spanish.
Each of the classrooms is led by a native speaking Montessori teacher and an assistant to create an immersive language AND cultural environment. The teachers not only utilize the full set of traditional Montessori materials, but add culturally rich supplemental materials to the classroom.
