Our Philosophy
m.i.l.k. was developed under the influence of Hong Kong Man Sang Kindergarten and International Nursery (HKMSKG).  Founded in 1969, HKMSKG provides high quality education and effective programming in a challenging and engaging environment.

Our Philosophy

We strongly believe that early learning programs are critical in laying the foundation for success in learning and for children’s total development.  It is during these years that children build pivotal skills in literacy, mathematics, social awareness, and world knowledge.  This is why we feel it is important to capture these crucial years and nurture children to their maximum potential.

The heart of our philosophy is interactive learning and play.  Play is a vehicle for learning and lies at the core of innovation and creativity.  It provides opportunities for learning in a context in which children are at their most receptive.  With reflective practice, planned activities and careful observation on the part of our educators, deep learning is constructed as children interact with their teachers, with hands-on materials, and with their peers.  We believe that the act of learning is a shared and reciprocal process – children learn from our educators, as our educators learn from them.

At m.i.l.k., we value the fact that parents are their children’s first and most powerful teachers and role models and understand the importance of partnerships with families and communities to strengthen the ability of early childhood settings to meet the needs of young children.  This is why our school supports children and their families by taking the time to nurture family involvement.  Mutual respect and reciprocal learning between parents and team members are essential for children to flourish.

We hope you will join us in this partnership to inspire children’s learning and watch them grow to be unique, confident and successful participants of our society.  “Let’s nurture with m.i.l.k.!”
