The MIS Early Learning program focuses on inspiring a love of learning for a lifetime. We help identify strengths of each child, supporting them individually in their unique learning processes. We encourage learning through joyful, age appropriate activities in order to keep all children highly motivated.
Our experienced staff is also focus on teaching valuable social skills to help prepare our little learners for the next phase of school and beyond. Through our many years of experience, we have had the honor of witnessing our young learners use these basic skills learned to continue their growth and curiosity, and develop into productive and compassionate global citizens.
We are a trilingual nursery - German, English and Spanish. We follow the internationally successful Immersion Method, and our preschool program meets the requirements of the Cambridge International Education Curriculum as well as the Hessen education plan. We have highly motivated and academically trained native speaking teachers who implement our MIS concept. This provides children with a sense of security and builds confidence.
To support our language immersion program, we also expose children at every age to a variety of music, and feel this is a necessity for their quickly developing brain. Our little learners have the opportunity to sing and play with instruments with specialized teachers and musicians to help them learn the sounds and meanings of words, as well as to have great fun while learning! We provide multiple opportunities for music engagement, as research supports that music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness such as intellectual, social and emotional skill, motor skills, language development and overall literacy.
We would like to invite you, along with your child, to explore the exciting world of our MIS Viernheim nursery, kindergarten and preschool!
Early Learning Curriculum
In the first few years of learning, we focus on the personal development of the child and initial contact for foreign language. In addition, the following skills will be developed:
- At least two languages (German and English)
- Gross and fine motor skills development
- Social skills
- Learning music and songs
- Acquisition of words, syllables, letters, quantities, numbers, colors and shapes
- Recognition of and writing of one's name
- Playful scientific learning projects in English and German
In the preschool year, the focus is also autonomous action and the additional appropriation of cognitive abilities. A variety of methods are employed to insure the childrens' learning styles are accommodated. Our school's goal is for children to meet the Cambridge curriculum by the end of Preschool Kindergarten Year Stage 1, which also give them an opportunity to join our Primary and Secondary international school in Viernheim.
We believe that communication with family is important as this stage of learning. We aim to have on-going communication with our families through regular documentation, the creation of a portfolio, and scheduled parent-teacher conferences.
