Current Status
Get Started

The children’s approach to Mathematics through the Montessori method awakens their interest in identifying and applying mathematical thinking, which at this age stage arises naturally.

Between the ages of three and six, they begin to develop mathematical skills and to understand concepts. It is even easier if they work in this area through everyday situations and concrete practical experiences.

The learning of Math is one of the aspects that distinguishes Montessori pedagogy. This teaching happens easily and awakens interest in children, thanks to the materials used and the criteria followed when introducing them.

During the 3-to-6-years stage, mathematical skills begin to develop through concrete experiences that allow the child to understand the concepts, instead of mechanising them, and to relate them to everyday situations.

“The teaching of Mathematics should be completely transformed, starting from a sensory preparation, starting from a concrete knowledge”  Maria Montessori

Math in Montessori pedagogy

  • Building the mathematical mind.
  • The characteristics of children aged 3 to 6 years old and the learning of Mathematics.
