The Panther Cub Studio allows learners to bIMG_20181119_091901383e curious.  We create an environment in which they are are free to explore and discover the spark that ignites learning.   

Along their journey, they continue to develop vital character traits and social skills like responsibility, kindness, empathy, honesty, critical thinking, and the joys of hard work and learning. Our Panther Cub Studio is a Montessori-rich holistic environment that aims to stimulate children’s minds, spirits, and bodies as they figure out the world around them and their place in it.


In EMA’s Panther Cub Studio…

    • Learning is Panther-Led. 
    • Space is key; an ideal learning environment includes natural light, order, and beauty. 
    • Panthers learn best through play, exploration, and lots of outside time.
    • Adults guide, not teach.
