Nienhuis Montessori. Global Standard.

Each child is special. Each child is unique. Children can develop without pre-determined rules, but they need individual guidance and educational materials that encourage and promote this development. We believe in personal growth and offer the necessary tools to support this. Our material meets the demands made by Maria Montessori’s educational method regarding spontaneous learning. The high quality of the Nienhuis Montessori products provides children with the tools they need to become independent and critical thinkers.

Concentration And Fun

Nienhuis Montessori materials harness a child’s natural interest in a subject. The fact that the focus of each Montessori exercise is on one educational concept means that children are able to work independently and check their own work. The use of colors and shapes helps children concentrate and makes learning fun. They work individually and in a natural and stress-free environment.

Commitment And Passion

A specially trained teacher guides the children in such a way that they learn to work independently and with a specific aim. This teacher creates a ‘prepared environment’ – whereby the educational materials are available to the children in a specifically
structured way. This can only be achieved using materials created by skilled individuals and based on a rich tradition. Children across the globe choose Nienhuis Montessori materials for a reason.

Montessori Education

Maria Montessori believed that children learn best when they are very interested in a subject. Their natural curiosity drives them to make their own way. Our materials are based on the Montessori education method and they stimulate the child’s desire to learn. They promote imagination, increase insight, and create a desire for quality. They inspire children to search for something special. We believe in a child’s strengths. It’s up to them to discover their individual talents. Together with us.
