Your Child Is in Great Hands
At MI School, we are unique in our approach to early childhood education. In addition to the theories of Jean Piaget, Lev Vygotsky, and Reggio Emilia, MI Approach is influenced by the works of Howard Gardner, a developmental psychologist from Harvard University best known for his theory of Multiple Intelligences to reflect what we all know to be true: that we are all gifted in different ways. MI Theory was released in his book Frames of Mind and it provides a useful framework to nurture young children to engage and develop by catering to their individual needs and strengths within a learning environment. Dr. Gardner identified the following intelligence profiles:
Verbal - Linguistic Intelligence: A child's ability to express themselves and understand others.
Logical - Mathematical Intelligence: An understanding of numbers and quantities
Musical Intelligence: A child's sensitivity towards music and sound
Visual - Spatial Intelligence: A child's awareness of physical space as well as the arts
Kinesthetic - Body Intelligence: An awareness of the body and movement. This can include the sense of touch or a potential towards physical activity.
Interpersonal Intelligence: A child's ability to relate to and interact with others
Intrapersonal Intelligence: A child's awareness of what he can or cannot do as he feels confident with himself.
Naturalist Intelligence: A child's ability to recognize and categorize plants, animals and other objects in nature.
MI School focuses on a whole-child approach. Teachers celebrate the diversity of students, and programs are designed to nurture each child's individual strengths and interests. MI approach strengthens and encourages emotional, intellectual, social, and physical well-being through the expertise of the team of educators and a unique partnership with parents.
