The age span of 3 to 6 roughly corresponds to one of the child’s natural stages of development. As the child works in a group of children of various ages, abilities, cultures, and interests, the child acquires emotional growth, as well as intellectual progress. MSA provides an environment in which the child may freely develop an inquisitive mind and the social attitudes necessary for a wholesome life. Each child follows his individual program and progresses at his own pace.
Children from 3 through 6 years of age work together during the morning session (9am through 12noon). Children 5 years of age through 6 years of age remain in the classroom and work until 3pm. This is the kindergarten year when the child’s acquired knowledge comes into full fruition.
The instructional materials and equipment provide the core of the child’s learning program. The materials are scientifically designed aids, placed on low shelves, within easy reach. The child is encouraged to use the materials according to his interests.
Emphasis on practical life and sensorial exercises is an integral activity, designed to take advantage of the young child’s unique talent to develop his own capabilities. The child learns to respect the feelings and ideas of others, sharing in work and play.
Special materials enable the child to learn to care for himself. Lessons in courtesy give him confidence to deal with everyday situations. Through its enriched curriculum – language, mathematics, science, history, geography, music, and art – the school provides “a preparation for life.”
