The Montessori materials

In a Montessori preschool the children are exposed to many complex concepts at an early age through the use of the specially designed Montessori materials. They are tools to stimulate the child into logical thought and discovery. They are the cornerstone of the Montessori classroom and are hands-on learning tools that enable the child to literally see and explore abstract concepts. The children work through the materials in a methodical, sequential way with each step building on the one preceding it and developing in complexity

Most of the materials are self-correcting, allowing the children to see for themselves when they have succeeded. Achieving tasks builds confidence and self-discipline, while the activities assist coordination, concentration and an organised approach to problem solving.
