Montessori Boxes

“Play is the work of the child." - Maria Montessori 

Children call everything on our classroom shelves “work” so their minds assign value to what they are accomplishing. 

Our “Do it Myself” boxes are specifically designed for Montessori’s Primary age group of 3-6 year olds.  The goal is for children to open the box, “read” the picture instructions, and get to work independently, building up to an hour of completely independent work time each day. 

Named after our classrooms, we offer 3 different boxes: the Kindness Box for $50, the Goodness Box for $35, and the Gratitude Box for $60.  The Gratitude box is geared towards pre-K children and is meant to assist parents in assessing their child for kindergarten and building up math and literacy skills in preparation for, and during, their kindergarten year.
