Welcome Chicago Families!

We take great pride in our STEAM Summer Camp, so we know your children will love it!

Quantum Montessori is excited to offer our STEAM (that’s STEM + Art) Summer Camp program in Chicago! It isn’t too late to find a summer camp near you that offers an engaging and hands-on learning experience that your child will enjoy. We work hard to ensure our campers remain engaged all summer long!  Also, why not avoid learning loss this summer in the process.

About Your STEAM Camp Leader

Stem Summer Camp

Hi! I’m Ms. Ashleigh, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a teacher or part of an amazing education system. I found my true calling as a mother and embraced my role by teaching my own children at home. I started a small Montessori school out of my home 3 years ago and have loved sharing what I’ve learned with families in my community!

This is my third year leading a summer pod, and I absolutely love everything about it! My favorite part is seeing my students’ eyes light up when they grasp a new concept. It’s so magical! I truly feel that I have found my passion in life, and I can’t wait to teach your child.  My team and I can’t wait to meet you!


Our summer camp keeps the fun going all year long! I give your children the ability to keep a schedule during the summer, avoid being bored, have something positive to look forward to, continue their learning, and have a blast with extra science experiments and water games! I can’t wait for your child to join my summer camp!

Choose a schedule that works best for you!

Kids STEM Summer Camp

Every day is an adventure! Our engaging and exciting hands-on activities are geared towards helping your child develop a love for life-long learning!

On days where we aren’t out visiting a museum or researching in nature, we will spend our time together learning about various STEAM subjects and diving deep into experiments that exercise what we have learned.  My students are engaged from the second they arrive to the second they leave with activities that YOU approve and THEY will enjoy.

We offer family events to give families the opportunity to get to know your child’s camp leader (that would be me!) and other campers! We’re looking forward to plan family BBQs, hikes, pizza parties and more! Join in on the fun!

Quality Hands-on Experiences

Our curriculum is designed to be developmentally appropriate and aligned to the standards outlined by Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). STEAM principles encourage exploration, experimentation, and creativity through hands-on learning.  Our aim is to assist your child down the road to self-discovery and fun and exploration!


We aim to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring their environment.

In fact, one of the best ways we can guide is to ask THEM questions like “What are you creating?” “How does it work?” “Tell me about what you drew.” etc.


I will keep you in the loop on what we’re working on, and we also let you know exactly how your child is doing during our 30 minute end of the summer conference.

The Process

We love to get messy, and the best time for that is at art time! We focus on the process, not the end product, and use a wide variety of materials to ensure that each camper grasps each topic.  Campers learn SO MUCH MORE when they have the chance to research and explore subjects they find interesting.

Fun Themes & Projects!

Every few weeks, we dive deep into a new, exciting theme based on our upcoming day trips, the weather, holidays, or whatever the children are interested to learn more about. 

We change our projects and materials to reflect the new learning theme. We are always evolving, and you never know what exciting things we’ll add next week!

Our End of Summer Day Trip!

Get excited because this summer our End of Summer Day Trip will be to Brookfield Zoo! Students will perform animal research in the weeks leading up to the trip to help assist them as they learn about the various animals that call Brookfield Zoo home.

Parents, grandparents and guardians are encouraged to join us in making this a fun experience for this entire camp family!

Getting started is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
