Nienhuis Montessori 

Nienhuis Montessori was founded in 1929 by Albert Nienhuis, who collaborated with Maria Montessori to create products which reflected her vision of education. Children feel a natural drive to develop and need to be given the opportunity to do so freely. Heutink enables children to discover the world independently through Nienhuis Montessori. We only use the best materials, created with care, commitment and attention to detail. Nienhuis combines skill with technology, and has been doing so for over 80 years. Educating people is a skill.

Nienhuis Montessori has been officially endorsed by the Association Montessori Inernationale for decades. It is also the most popular brand when it comes to Montessori materials. 

Nienhuis Montessori materials

Nienhuis Montessori materials meet the demands of Montessori education regarding spontaneous learning. Our high quality products enable children to become independent and critical thinkers. Our products are based on Montessori education principles and stimulate childrens’ desire to learn. They promote imagination, increase insight and create a desire for quality. Children can develop without pre-determined rules, but they do need individual guidance and supportive educational materials. We believe in personal growth and offer the necessary tools to support this.

Unique materials for unique children

A specially trained teacher should guide children in how to work independently and with a particular goal in mind. That teacher needs to prepare an educational environment in a structured way. This is only possible with materials created by skilled individuals and based on a rich tradition. For this reason teachers across the globe choose Nienhuis Montessori materials.

Our materials harness children’s natural interests. The focus on one educational objective leads to maximum concentration. Individual control creates independence. The use of bright colours and shapes entice activity and makes learning fun. Children can work individually in a natural and stress-free environment.

Montessori education focuses on attention, involvement and perfection. These elements are not just critical to the use of materials but also form the basis for their creation. At Nienhuis, we combine skills with advanced technology and modern equipment. The result: Unique materials for unique children.

Our products

Montessori materials can not be seen as individual educational products. Together they form a full curriculum and support a clear educational approach. Learn more about our products.
