This program is a new offering for MAN, but Montessori has always incorporated an all encompassing approach to education, so, really, STEAM is a natural fit.  Read on to find out how this program came to MAN.

Montessori Academy of Naples has long enjoyed a relationship with Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead, a local after school and summer camp program  that sparks the spirit of discovery and ingenuity in children while serving the needs of working families.  As their name suggests, their programs are teeming with science, technology, engineering, art, and music projects and activities.  Each program is designed to encourage curiosity and imagination, and give children hands-on experiences with today’s technology, and all with an eye to the future.  Their students are excited to arrive each day and excited to learn.  Sounds very Montessori…with a modern twist!

Indeed, we too have been watching and learning, and now, we have been given the opportunity to include this STEAM-style of programming  under our Montessori Academy of Naples’ name.  We are so excited to add this expansive, experience-based, and forward-thinking curriculum to our summer repertoire!  We have, of course, hired experienced guides for the program, and will use the time-tested materials and equipment.   And, we already have the perfect spaces for it!

That said, the best part of this new venture is that it is a friendly transition between Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead and MAN.   Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead will continue to operate in other locations independently, but has graciously offered their expertise as we take this fresh new step.  We are thankful for their support and encourage families to seek Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead to serve their children as they grow.

As with all of MAN’s extension and summer programming, registration in our SUMMER STEAM program, will require separate registration, tuition, and fees.  These programs are for children 5 to 12 years old.  Please let us know if you are interested.
