Follow the child

Following the child is a fundamental principle of Montessori education that respects and nurtures each child’s unique developmental path.

By observing and understanding individual interests and needs, we tailor our approach to support their natural growth, fostering a love for learning and self-motivation. This personalized guidance helps children develop confidence, independence, and a strong sense of self.

At the Flourish Montessori Spark Studio, our mission is

  • To cultivate academic, physical, and emotional autonomy using developmentally tailored activities inspired by the teachings of Maria Montessori.
  • To ignite a love for learning with hands-on experiences and engaging play-based tasks.
  • To prepare our learners for their future endeavours by embracing the Hero’s Journey philosophy principles.

Why Montessori?

Montessori education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, emphasizes independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development.

Our Montessori program at Flourish School nurtures each child’s innate curiosity and love for learning through specially designed materials and activities that cater to their developmental needs.

Mixed-Age Classrooms

Mixed-age classrooms are a cornerstone of the Montessori philosophy.

By grouping children of different ages together, we create a dynamic and supportive learning environment where younger children learn from older peers, and older children reinforce their knowledge by mentoring younger classmates.

This approach fosters a sense of community, cooperation, and mutual respect, helping children develop critical social and leadership skills.

A Day in the Life of a Montessori Studio

A day at Montessori Spark Studio is a vibrant blend of structured learning and free-spirited exploration. As you step into our space, you’ll be met with an atmosphere that encourages learners to move confidently, allowing their innate inquisitiveness to guide them.

Morning Work Cycle

Mornings are reserved for our Montessori-inspired Work Cycle, where each learner immerses themselves in diverse challenges scattered throughout the studio, all within the framework of Maria Montessori’s guiding principle of ‘freedom within boundaries’.

Afternoon Spark Play

As the day progresses into the afternoon, the energy shifts to Spark Play, an outdoor-centered activity session with loose-parts play. Here, imagination reigns supreme: some learners might be fervently constructing play structures, while others might be engrossed in the simple joy of picking veggies and herbs from our vegetable garden or discovering new insects.

Each day at Spark Studio is a beautiful interplay of structure and spontaneity, ensuring holistic growth for every child.
