The Montessori Philosophy

The Montessori Philosophy

STEAMspark follows the Montessori pedagogy which is the groundbreaking work and a worldwide educational enterprise of Dr. Maria Montessori – a medical doctor, an educationist, and a peace advocate.  Dr. Montessori’s thorough research and lifelong scientific observations on children while working closely with them enable her to present to the humanity with an education method which has been provenly successful for over 100 years across the world in various cultural settings.

The Montessori method believes that the child from birth to the age of six innately possesses an absorbent mind which absorb like a sponge everything and anything the environment has to offer. Such an absorbent mind comes with “constructive possibilities” for a child to become “a man of his time, a man of his civilization” if he or she is guided through a thoughtfully prepared learning environment.  Based on this philosophy, the Montessori method is designed as a child-centered educational approach that follows children individually to meet their developmental needs on physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and academic grounds.

Montessori prepared environments are equipped with didactic materials that are carefully designed and strategically placed with the goal to nurture the child’s independence and enduring love for learning. Montessori teachers are the trained adults who understand and deeply value the Montessori principles. These two factors support the child to realize his or her fullest potential with self-directed learning style.

At STEAMspark, we make sure that the dynamics of the triad of Montessori - the child, the prepared environment, and the trained adult – delicately and perfectly balances each other.  Our aspiration exists in providing the best learning environment in which our students develop freely, confidently, and happily into self-aware, socially responsible, and academically successful individuals when they leave the school into a bigger world.
