The adults at our facility are committed to providing stimulating learning activities that reflect the unique needs of each child. To ensure the very best, we have designed “the four building blocks,” which will ensure a holistic and realistic development with a sense of individuality. We are mature enough to understand and identify a child’s individual needs.
“The 4 Building Blocks” constructed with the Montessori Philosophy
LEARNING PROGRAMS For young children to reach their full potential in a learning environment, they must each be viewed as an individual with unique interests, varying skill levels and specific needs. We at MMA are fully equipped to identify and fulfill.
NUTRITION AND PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT We have developed a specialized program for the development of nutritious a physical development to ensure that children make healthy choices by developing the gross and fine motor skills.

FACILITIES AND ENVIRONMENT MMAprides itself on making certain that all center facilities are constantly upgraded ensuring a safe and secure environment for all children. Our extensive play and educational facilities are specifically designed with child safety and child development as the main priority. The development of personal dignity and ability in each child – no matter how young – is one of the most valuable and permanent benefits of Montessori education. This principle continues to inspire and guide our Teachers and Parents. MMA’s special, proven approach will guide your child towards independence, a love of learning and future success.
Under the careful guidance of our certified staff, children develop at their own pace and learn that day care can be an unending adventure, one that inspires a lifetime of discovery.
Stage I : 0 to 1 year 6 months
The first three years of life are the most significant ones in the development of the potential of human beings.”The small size of a newborn and its inability to take care of itself invokes our loving attention. The infant’s physical development is phenomenal and apparent and inspires our care and attention. Yet a more profound but less obvious development takes place within the child.” This period is known as the ‘Spiritual Embryo’.
Stage II : 1 year 6 months to 3 years
The idea is that the second embryonic period occurs after birth during the first three years of life when the child’s intelligence is formed, when the child acquires the culture and language into which he or she is born. It is a period when the core of personality, social being and the essence of spiritual life are formed. It is widely recognized, that as adults we are largely the product of our first two years of life, a time of which we have no conscious memories.
Stage III : 3 years to 6 years
The 3 to 6 year old child undergoes a process of self -construction. The application of the Montessori philosophy and the specifically designed Montessori equipment aids the child’s ability to absorb knowledge and continue on this path of knowledge.
There are four main areas in the Pre-primary program: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language and Mathematics. MMA also emphasizes on Creative Arts, Music, Science, Geography and Cultural Studies. Assimilation of one’s own culture is the child’s central developmental drive in the first plane of development. MMA’s Pre-Primary environment serves this drive. Abundantly, bringing the world to the child. Globes, maps, songs, land forms, collection of pictures of life in different cultures and much more is offered at MMA with the aim of helping the child to grow as an individual appreciating the larger context of his or her world.
Auxiliary : With the guiding principle of all-round development, MMA lays equal emphasis on, out of classroom activities.
The children are exposed to life around them in a practical manner, so that they are not limited to theoretical and ‘bookish’ knowledge. Our approach stimulates the minds of children that will help them to think and act independently.
Keeping in line with our approach several class trips, house visits, practical demonstrations and other out of the classroom activities are organized on a regular basis.
House visits are organized to various classmates’ houses to develop social skills. These visits help to nurture concepts of social etiquette like how to behave; share and care for each other while having friends over or visiting their peers.
