Philosophy of Montessori Education

The Montessori Philosophy

STEAMspark embodies the philosophy of Montessori education, inspired by the groundbreaking work of Dr. Maria Montessori, a distinguished medical doctor, educator, and advocate for peace. Dr. Montessori's profound research and lifelong scientific observations of children, coupled with her hands-on experience, have led her to develop an educational method that has stood the test of time for over a century, transcending cultural boundaries worldwide. Rooted in the philosophy of Montessori, STEAMspark in Farmers Branch, Texas, embraces this proven approach, fostering holistic development and nurturing the innate curiosity and potential of every child.

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.
