What is the Montessori Method?

The Montessori method is an educational philosophy developed by Dr. Maria Montessori that focuses on fostering a child's natural curiosity and independence through a carefully designed environment and hands-on learning experiences. This approach is grounded in the understanding that children possess an innate drive to explore and learn from their surroundings.

  • Research Backing: "Journal of Educational Psychology" studies support Montessori's cognitive and socio-emotional development effectiveness.
  • Trove for Littles aligns with Montessori principles
  • Open-Ended Design: Our Montessori toys encourage active learning with open-ended designs.
  • Self-Directed Learning: Trove for Littles' toys promote self-directed exploration in line with Montessori approach.

The Montessori method acknowledges that children learn best when given the freedom to choose activities that align with their interests. Our toy offerings reflect this philosophy, encouraging children to engage in purposeful play that stimulates creativity, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills. As you explore our Montessori toys, you're providing your child with the tools to develop holistically in an environment that values their unique journey of discovery.
