Welcome to the Nursery Class at MAX, where young explorers between the ages of 1.5 and 2 embark on an exciting journey of growth and discovery.

At this stage, children are brimming with enthusiasm and curiosity as they take their first steps towards independence. It's a time when their minds, bodies, and senses are rapidly developing, and we're here to provide the nurturing environment and well-researched methods needed to prepare them for this remarkable phase of life.

In our warm and home-away-from-home environment, we understand that these little adventurers are ready for more complex stories, questions, songs, images, letters, and numbers to stimulate their intellectual development. Their motor control is rapidly improving, and their agility, strength, and coordination are in need of careful attention. Additionally, they are beginning to learn the essential skills of cooperation and empathy, which call for targeted mentorship and hands-on experiences.

Our Nursery Curriculum is thoughtfully designed to cater to the unique needs of these budding learners. We recognize that toddlers are constantly on the move, eager to explore and discover new things each day. As such, our daily rhythm is tailored to help them explore their interests and cultivate new ones through a variety of activities,
