Infant Day Care Program (8 weeks to 24 months old)

Their Infant Day Care Program is known for the individual attention and care given to a child. They make sure that the child feels safe, loved, and comfortable in the environment and enjoys the learning process. The parents need not worry about their child at all.

>>Toddler Program (2 to 3 years old)

Dr Maria Montessori was one of the first educators who recognised that the first few years of a child’s life are critical to the development of personality and intellect. Toddlers are inquisitive, and they can’t be blamed for their curious nature, it is their age, and zeal to learn new things. The program allows them the freedom to learn as much as they can, as quickly as possible.  The teachers give a child individual attention to ensure they have developed the following skills:

*Sensory and Perception



*Physical and motor skills

*Social and Emotional Growth

>> Private Kindergarten Program (4 to 5 years old)

Here the focus is on the proper overall development of the child. The school has a private pre-K/Kindergarten program to ensure the child is, in fact, ready for Kindergarten. The teachers make sure that a child is understanding and comprehending things, guaranteeing rapid development.

>>Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten Program


*In a prepared and comfortable environment the children work in five different Montessori areas including, practical life, sensorial, language, math and cultural.

*The sensorial area allows the students to be aware of the environment and refines the child senses. The pre- K students practice classification of sizes, shapes, compositions, texture, volume, temperature, weight and taste.

*As the pre-k children are in a sensitive period of language, the FLMA program closely pay attention to their conversations and encourage them to express their needs, feelings, and thoughts.

*In the academic area of language arts, the students master A-Z sounds and make words by putting them together. As the school starts with moveable alphabets, children break them down and spell it out.
