Teachers at MRC Kids & JSP, Bandaraya Impiana Ipoh want children to experience an education that allows them to achieve optimal academic performance and be able to go on to tackle complex challenges in the global society.

Instead, they acknowledge that children learn and understand in different ways, therefore different modes of instruction are more effective in terms of achievement and their attitudes toward learning. This is aligned with Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences.

The MRC Kids programme provides a good range of skills and knowledge to prepare young children for primary school, while giving them ample opportunities to discover their passions.
