At Monti Kids, we talk a lot about cultivating 21st-century skills in our children: the ability to focus, problem-solve, and persevere. These are tools we believe will help our children be independent in their future.
In the elementary school grades, people talk about STEM, which is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. How do we support our children as they explore these subjects? How do we ensure there are enough students entering these fields that we will have sufficient scientists to solve the world’s issues in the next generation?
The answer is: you’re probably already doing it.
When the environment you prepare for your child is guided by the Montessori approach, they are encouraged to explore how things work, to conduct experiments, and to pursue a sense of order out of their observations.
