About Us

About Us

STEM believes that every child is different and needs an environment that specifically addresses individual needs. We encourage children to work independently and engage in small groups. Our educational methodology will enhance self-esteem, foster social skills to solve problems, build friendships, and support the ever-increasing curiosity about the world in which they live.

Our goal is to provide the practical learning experiences that allows children to develop the skills to become successful learners within the classroom, and more importantly, to develop self-confidence, independence, compassion, and the sense of responsibility to become successful members of society.

We assure that our childcare and daycare program is a unique opportunity for your child to learn through an authentic Montessori program using hands-on learning experiences that creates enrichment and unending discovery.
