Philosophy & Values
At Step by Step Montessori, we draw our inspiration from Maria Montessori’s approach to education and by deep research and insight on early childhood developmental practices. We know that a child’s brain is very elastic and absorbs information like a sponge absorbs water. We believe that touching on fundamental studies through hands-on, independent, interactive, and fun techniques are a great way to begin their educational pursuit. We build on student’s curiosity and interests and encourage creativity and curiosity.
We create an environment that rewards learning and inspires students to become lifelong learners. We stand strong to our commitment of compassion, respect, tolerance, friendship and communal responsibility in our practice. At SBSM we think that learning is fun and try to have fun while learning.
Study Methods and Skills
Students will work and learn, individually, in groups and coached by teachers when required. We use computer graphics and children’s software designed by Montessori experts to visualize the learning experience hand in hand with Montessori methods and arts.
The units of study designed for each school year allows a well-rounded educational experience for each child based on their age group and abilities. They will always have supervised outdoor activities at different intervals of the day intended to strengthen social interaction and promote activity and health. Outdoor activities in an open and interactive area allow for children to release their energy and socialize with friends.
We invite parents, grandparents, and guardians to our school for Cultural day, Mother’s day, Thanksgiving potluck, Back to school night, and few conferences each year. We dedicate time for private conversation for teachers and parents. We cherish a warm relationship between teachers and parents and always look forward to updating each parent on their child’s progress through reports sent home. We provide monthly newsletters to keep parents informed of activities and upcoming news and events in the classrooms.
