Each chapter has an introduction describing the significance of that domain of Development- how it relates to the whole child, factors that influence it, and the typical progressions of skills.
The AMI curriculum is based on the highest international standards emphasizing on the Importance of stimulation and brain growth as we understand that the first few years of life are critical to a child’s intellectual and emotional development. The focus is imparting skill based knowledge using sequential learning techniques, Blending the best of global systems with Indian ethos and values like togetherness, sharing, moral, respect to elders and good manners to name a few.
By encouraging students to develop the independence and skills necessary to be Self-sufficient in their classrooms, we prepare them to venture into the biggest Classroom of all. They leave standing on an academic and social foundation that will support them throughout their lives
Each activity has an age designation; the curriculum is divided into the following stages

A unique and beneficial feature of the AMI programs is the inclusion of professionally developed and designed curriculum manuals. We have invested countless hours and dedicated resources to researching and identified our curriculum manuals to cover every aspect of theory and practice of Montessori education for children from 1 1/2 through 3 1/2 years of age. At AMI our first priority is our students, we believe that the combination of including the best resources available today plus access to a knowledgeable, experienced, and committed support network will prepare our students to be sensitive and effective guides of our educational system.
