Spark Studio

Explore + Create + Grow – 5 to 7 years old

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Inspired by the Montessori & Waldorf methods and Acton Academy principles, our Spark Studio encourages young learners to experience hands-on challenges, age-appropriate Socratic discussions, team building, self-regulation, and play-based learning. We recognize that young learners process everything through their senses, and this environment inspires curiosity and joyful learning as they explore their natural interests through play and collaboration.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

  • Learners build the foundations of reading, goal setting, and independent learning.
  • A well-balanced educational experience ignites curiosity, perseverance, creativity, and strong character through spirited children pushing boundaries in a safe environment designed specifically for them.
  • Learners are introduced to mathematics and writing through engaging quest (projects), fun games, and STEAM activities.
  • Through a careful balance of freedom and structure, learners are guided to “Learn to Think,” “Learn to Do,” and “Learn to Be” that is far more critical than simply learning to know.

Children learn as they play. More importantly, in play, children learn how to learn.
