What are the 5 Most Important Montessori Daycare Activities?

Montessori daycare

 There are more than a dozen authentic Montessori tools used to teach daycare children, but there are a few that stand out above the others, and a whole category of activity that often gets forgotten in discussions. The activities mentioned here encompass some of the best aspects of Montessori education.

  1. The Pink Tower
    The Pink Tower always ranks among the most-loved Montessori daycare activities. The concept of arranging the rings in order is simple, and the activity offers visual and tactile clues to help children quickly master the activity. 

  2. Beads
    Beads are an assortment of sizes, each containing a set number of beads. Children begin with simple sorting programs and progress through addition, subtraction, and even multiplication and division. As a tool for learning to perform math, the beads are in a class by themselves.

  3. Binomial Cubes
    This brilliant toy helps children learn everything from sorting to advanced mathematics. On the surface, a cube is simply 8 wooden blocks, but those blocks can be manipulated to perform many equations at every skill level.

  4. Puzzle Maps
    Learning about geography is easier for children who have a hands-on way to study. Puzzle maps provide a way to manipulate different states and/or countries to work out exactly where geographic locations are found, and how they compare in size and shape to other geographic features.

  5. Practical Experience
    Learning to perform practical life applications builds self-esteem and teaches children that they are an important part of their family or immediate community. Pouring liquids, setting the table, or simply learning to greet new arrivals are important practical lessons that are presented through the Montessori Method.

Everything about the Montessori Method is designed to assist children in learning. Authentic activities are carefully design, built to last, and able to perform multiple functions based on a child’s progress. The idea is to give children as much incentive to learn as possible, and allow them to study using hands-on play-based activities that entertain as they instruct.
