SPARK STUDIO ACTON ACADEMY

Our Spark Studio program consists of morning Montessori activities and afternoon themed learning.  The Montessori morning is more academic and the kids progress through the curriculum at their own individual pace and encourages self-help and independence.  Children are guided through work that will challenge them to learn new things.  The afternoon includes daily play-based activities that encourage problem-solving, critical thinking, and cooperative play.
