IMSP PODCAST: MEET ALUMNA Laura van Steeg

“At IMSP, we were always taught how to speak to people, to be mindful, to listen to one another, and that really helped when it came to making new friends. Once you have friends, everything else is simple. Everything else, you can figure out.

A warm welcome to this week’s guest on the IMSP alumni podcast, Laura van Steeg. Spending her early years immersed in Montessori education, Laura went on to study at a secondary school that shares this same educational framework. Speaking with our host Mariana, Laura reveals how her time at IMSP helped ease her transition into a new community. Drawing on her Grace and Courtesy lessons, Laura was ready to take on the world. 

Laura in her own words: 

Hello, my name is Laura van Steeg and I’m 17 years old. I started going to IMSP when I was in third grade and then I left after the fifth grade to go to Duhovka Gymnazium. I love acting in the theatre and I’ve been a part of the Montessori Model United Nations.

Celebrating our 20th anniversary, we are taking time to reflect with students who have been with us along the way. Tune in and learn more about their experience in the IMSP classroom and what Montessori means for them today.

Dr. Montessori highlighted the importance of sensitive periods in children, which are known as windows of opportunities for children to develop skills, including movement, language and most definitely, order. A child’s need for external order is present as early as childbirth and peaks in their second year, before fading at about the age of 5. This period of development helps a child to develop a connection between themselves and the world, process information and overcome challenges.

Montessori Sensorial Materials Lead to Sensory Awareness

The materials in the Sensorial area of the Montessori classroom are quite unique – they speak to the tactile observer in all of us.

Maria Montessori’s work in the Sensorial environment was designed to take advantage of this tendency. Today, I will discuss the materials featured in the Children’s House classroom (ages 3-6).
