Do you know any kindergartens that use Montessori teaching aids? These are absorbing toys that not only entertain but, above all, support the development of the child. Montessori toys are based on the principle that a child learns primarily while playing when the mind is relaxed and more receptive. They are designed in a way that makes a child happy to play independently, and at the same time learn important skills.

How do Montessori toys help a child learn?
Children’s activities in the first years of their lives depend on activeness and spontaneity. Toddlers are interested in everything, want to see everything, and try everything.

Montessori toys remove this problem from parents and offer children the opportunity to discover the intricacies of the world safely.

We all get the best results in learning if we are keenly interested in something, and children are interested in almost everything. Therefore, it is necessary to take advantage of children’s desire to learn new things and wrap it in educational opportunities and protect against accidents that are a normal part of a child’s learning about the world.
Among the Montessori toys that deserve special recognition, you can find manipulative boards. They are a great alternative to regular toys. Such a board means many hours of great fun combined with education. Elements mounted on the board perfectly affect fine motor skills and the development of hands.
In the Montessori boards, your child will discover elements that will arouse the child’s curiosity and stimulate creative thinking. For example, the child will have the opportunity to learn matching shapes, and locking things using a key properly. The selection of elements is wide and adapted to the age.
