A Day in the Life at GMIS

Caring, gentle teachers

Our son went to GMIS for preschool and loved it. Caring, gentle teachers, a strong parent community and Mandarin - all that we could hope for.

Best Choice

GMIS is such an incredible school. We always tell other parents it's the best school in the area because you get the Mandarin language education PLUS Montessori program. It's the best choice we've made to enroll our child in this school.

Dedicated Parents

The teachers and staff at GMIS genuinely care for the well-being of all the students.  They provide a warm, supportive environment for kids to learn and explore the world around them. I feel fortunate to be involved with a school with such enthusiastic and dedicated parents, who are also fun to be around.

Serving Berkeley and the Bay Area, our preschool is dedicated to providing immersive bilingual Montessori education in English and Mandarin Chinese.

All of our activities promote the development of social skills, creative, emotional growth, and physical coordination as well as cognitive preparation. The holistic curriculum allows the child to experience the joy of learning and to develop self-esteem and independence. GMIS also incorporates music, arts and physical education to broaden the child’s senses and development.

Program

The Montessori program is based on the belief that children learn best through their own drive to learn about their world. Montessori methods provide the foundation for everything we teach at GMIS. Our teachers are the heart of what we do at GMIS. We employ talented Montessori teachers who all share a passion for children and education.

Classroom

Each of our two programs —Young Children’s House and Children’s House — features a spacious, bright classroom. In keeping with the school’s Montessori teaching philosophy, all materials are easily accessible to the students to allow them to select the work that interests them the most.

Outdoors

Outside, the campus features a playground for both organized and informal outdoor play and activities. Our garden includes an edibles area that allows children to plant, touch, see and eventually taste the fruits of their labor. The garden is primarily cared for by the children, who help their teachers and adult volunteers to plant, water, and harvest.

Enrichment

At GMIS, we believe in the importance of developing the whole child. Our weekly enrichment classes are provided to students of all ages at GMIS. These weekly, 30 minute classes add variety, excitement and breadth to each student’s week at GMIS, and include opportunities for children to discover and develop their interest in athletics and music.
