Everything is an excuse to learn

Encouraging autonomy and initiative in children is essential in the Montessori pedagogy. On the one hand, to facilitate and motivate their learning and on the other hand, to promote their development as a person. It is necessary to respect his sensitive periods but also his learning rhythms.

Before school lessons (arithmetic, language, etc.), very young children learn a lot through the activities of daily life. Sorting, folding, pouring, sweeping, threading... are not activities to be neglected: they promote the coordination of movements, concentration, organization in work and allow to carry out an activity until the end.

Montessori toys are primarily made of simple, natural materials, such as wood, to stimulate hands-on, self-directed learning. This means that the toys do not move or make sounds by themselves. No flashing lights. No limits are placed on their imagination.
