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.

A Montessori teacher functions as a facilitator of learning. She is a role model, designer of the learning environment, provider of resources, demonstrator, record-keeper, and observer of each child’s growth and development. She encourages, respects, and loves each child as a special, unique individual. She also provides support and education for parents and joins them in partnership to nurture the development of the child.

Our Young Children’s House is for children aged 2-3 years old. The program offers children a structured playing environment where they will be safely monitored by our teachers.

Children's House - Bamboo

Our Children’s House has two classrooms – one of which is called Bamboo, for children aged 3-6 years old.  The children participate in lessons and complete self-selected work. The activities during this time change depending on the child’s needs and interests and can vary from whole class participation and discussion to small group work and individual activities.
