Maria’s Babies Society
Established in 1986, Maria’s Babies Society started as a school emphasizing mother-and-child bonding, operating in partnership with the Imperial Gift Foundation of Aiiku Society, for children aged 0-6.
The school employs the BBS system which mixes all age groups for playtime or other activities. Children are not sorted into groups according to their birth years, but by their assessment of developmental level; and by interacting together at certain periods, the younger children have the opportunity to learn from the older ones, while the latter learn to be responsible for and tolerant of the former. The school also provides inclusive education; every class has space for one child with special needs.
Maria’s Babies Society offers a variety of programs; its main one is the morning program, for children up to 6 years old, children are divided into several age groups. In order to make the harmony of the group, to respect fellow children, the system of Big Brother / Big Sister plays a major role.
Also available the Year One (5-6 years), Afternoon Extension program, Little Diplomats (3-5 years) programs, and the After-school Preparatory Class (6-7 years).
Maria’s Babies’ Society attaches great importance to the art, eurhythmics and violin lessons.
