Starting Pre-school is an important milestone for your child. It is the start of a long journey into the world of education both theoretical and practical. In these early years it is important for your child to develop an interest if not a love, for school and education. It is at this early stage that we encourage the growth of social interaction and communication with others. Starting school can be a big step for some and an easy transition for others. At MIS we aim to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment. We will guide your child’s emotional, social and physical skills development through our Early Years Programme. Going to school is a new world to be explored and enjoyed.

FOUR PRINCIPLES( Four Principles shape the practice of our “Early Years” programme at MIS )
Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured;
Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships;
Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between the school and the home;
Children learn and develop in different ways and at different rates. Our framework aims to cover the education and care of all children in the Early Years programme.
There are seven areas of learning and development that shape our Early Years programme. All seven are important and interconnected. Three of the areas are fundamental and particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning and for building their capacity to learn and thrive. These three areas are :
- Communication and language;
- Physical development and
- Personal, social and emotional development
We must also support the children in four specific areas through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. These areas are :
- Numeracy / Maths
- Understanding the world; and
- Expressive arts and design
