What is Montessori Learning?
Montessori is an educational philosophy and practice that fosters rigorous, self-motivated growth for children and adolescents in all areas of their development, with a goal of nurturing each child's natural desire for knowledge, understanding, and respect. It was developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori.

Why do parents choose Montessori?
Montessori schools inspire confidence, and nurture the child's innate desire for learning, discovery, and social interaction skills in an environment where teachers are encouraging, engaging and value the individual child. Children learn how to learn, and this prepares each child for future academic and social excellence.

What is a Montessori Toy?
A Montessori toy is one that stimulates learning by encouraging kids to experiment. It should be a toy that they can hold and touch, as learning to manipulate objects is key in helping children develop their fine motor skills.

Montessori toys do not have to be neutral or colourless in order to be Montessori-aligned. Colour is an important part of Montessori, it should emphasize calm, muted colours and items that reflect real-world, natural beauty.
