Learning is in the details

The original Montessori craft

We believe that precision is the cornerstone of learning.
We believe that imprecise materials cripple understanding. Children need difficulty to be isolated, otherwise they won’t learn.
We believe that a mere millimeter can make all the difference when you’re trying to discern length from width at an early age.
What would happen to a mathematical proof if the equation was off by .0001?

Precision is emphasized.

Precise materials are at the heart of a Montessori education. We meticulously craft our products to isolate difficulty so that children can focus, gain mastery, and flourish. The truth of our Nienhuis materials is that they are the most precise, and in the Montessori tradition, precision is literally the difference between a child learning, and not learning. 

“The materials have to be well-done down to the millimeter, there’s a lot of mathematical reasoning behind them…What we believe, is that the material speaks to the children."
Chandra, Montessori teacher

Continuing the legacy

We continue de legacy of Maria Montessori with concrete materials, based on the original blueprints and the principals of the methodology.
