The guiding principle of the Montessori method of education is to discover, rather than to learn.

Montessori activities encourage individual exploration, independence, and curiosity from the very earliest years, using all five senses. The end result is children grow up into secure and responsible adults!


Children aged 2+ get their own individual mark making workbook.

They use the suggested shapes to try and colour in or draw its outline. This is the first stage of learning to write, working on coordination and fine motor skills in the fingers.


Used to develop the child’s understanding of size and difference. All ten blocks are the same size but vary in height and depth.

This material trains eye and hand co-ordination and teaches comparison and difference between wide and narrow sizes.


Promote cognitive and fine motor development. It supports concentration, coordination and a sense of order and satisfaction at the end result.

The Montessori puzzles have real images of nature and animals and in more complex models add explanations and ‘underneath’ pictures of the object being explored.


Allows the child to visually discriminate the cylinders straight away the diameter of the cylinders.

The size and height of each cylinder block remain the same while it is only the thickness that change.


Main purpose is to educate and teach the children how to dress themselves.

Frames are chosen and displayed depending on the developmental stage of the child. The older and developed the child the complexity of the dressing frame.


Promotes visual acuteness of size and dimension.

A useful material to use for manipulation and serve as an introduction into mathematic activities like comparison, grading, seriation. The cylinders provide a control of error and can be used and manoeuvred from a young age.
