Stem (Science, Technology, Engineering, And Mathematics) Program

The STEM Program at Holland Marsh Montessori School is offered as an extracurricular activity, aiming to introduce children to the principles and concepts of these fields in a fun and engaging manner. The program fosters critical thinking, problem-solving, hands-on learning experiences, and inquiry-based learning experiences. STEM programs are often tailored to different age groups, ensuring that the activities are age-appropriate and suitable for the developmental level of the children. The curriculum of the STEM program typically includes experiments, projects, and challenges that focus on scientific inquiry, technology exploration, engineering design, and mathematical concepts. Children may engage in activities such as building structures, exploring natural phenomena, conducting experiments, and solving puzzles. The primary goal of the STEM program is to encourage children to develop analytical skills, logical reasoning, and the ability to think systematically. Additionally, these activities cultivate teamwork, communication, and perseverance, as children often work collaboratively to solve challenges.

Music And Movement/Yoga Program

Our Music and Movement Program provides a structured environment where children can explore music, dance, and express themselves creatively. The primary goals of music and movement programs at Holland Marsh Montessori School are to enhance children’s coordination, rhythm, balance, and motor skills. The program incorporates activities such as singing, dancing, playing musical instruments, listening to different types of music that are age-appropriate, movement games, and relaxing yoga. Participating in music and movement programs can have numerous benefits for children. It helps in developing gross and fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and spatial awareness. The rhythmic nature of music and movement activities can also support language development and phonological awareness. Furthermore, these programs promote social interaction, cooperation, turn-taking, and listening skills. They can also serve as a creative outlet and a means of self-expression for children.

French Program

At Holland Marsh Montessori School, we recognize the importance of exposing children to different languages and cultures. Our extracurricular French program provides students with an opportunity to learn the French language in a Montessori environment, fostering a love for language learning and cultural appreciation. Through engaging activities, interactive lessons, and immersive experiences, our French program aims to develop students’ language skills, enhance their global awareness, and promote cross-cultural understanding. The educators utilize Montessori principles and teaching methodologies to create a supportive and engaging learning environment for our young learners. Students engage in various activities, such as language games, songs, storytelling, role-playing, and cultural celebrations, to develop their language skills naturally and holistically. To reinforce language learning, our French program organizes immersion activities that allow students to practice their French skills in real-life situations.

Arts Program

The Arts Program includes a wide range of activities such as drawing, painting, sculpting, collage-making, etc. Children may work with different art materials like crayons, markers, paint, clay, paper, fabric, and safe recycled materials. The activities may focus on themes, seasons, holidays, or nature, allowing children to explore their creativity and express themselves through art. Engaging in artistic endeavors allows children to use their imagination, think creatively, and problem-solve. Art also serves as a means of self-expression and can boost self-esteem and confidence.
