The Montessori Method

Dr. Maria Montessori was an Italian doctor and educator that believed in a child-centered teaching method, later called The Montessori Method. Dr. Montessori thought that children learn better when they choose what to learn. Modern-day Montessori-style education follows these rules. Our Montessori-style school employs this method in each program, from infancy to school age. 

Why Montessori?

Big Blue Sky STEAM Academy is a Montessori-style private school because we’ve seen the benefits of this teaching method. In our programs, your child will:

  • Develop Socially, Emotionally, Intellectually, & Physically
  • Interact Through Hands-on Learning
  • Grow Through Social Learning
  • Enjoy Their Educational Journey
  • Learn at Their Own Pace

Addressing Your Child’s Needs

Unlike public schools with set curriculums and schedules, our Montessori-style private school is centered on your child. While our curriculum is centered on various core competencies for each age group, we have a lesson plan for each child. Our top priority is ensuring your child develops the skills they need to progress. If your child has any developmental disabilities, we recommend Montessori-style education. 

Being Inclusive

Montessori-style education is perfect for every child, regardless of special needs. By learning at their own pace, they can understand concepts before moving on to the next. Public school curriculums don’t have time in their schedules to slow down, but we do. Your child will thrive in our diverse and inclusive environment and develop the curiosity they need to enjoy learning.

Core Competencies

Although Montessori-style education is child-centered, our curriculum is based on the following core competencies:


  • Safe Environmental Play
  • Developing Trust & Confidence
  • Develop Language & Fine Motor Skills
  • Gain Independence 


  • Grow Functional Independence
  • Develop Socially
