Maria Montessori believed that children learn best when they are very interested in a subject.
Our materials stimulate children's desire to learn.
Nienhuis Montessori was founded in 1929 by Albert Nienhuis, who collaborated with Maria Montessori to create products which reflected her vision of education. Children feel a natural drive to develop and need to be given the opportunity to do so freely.
Nienhuis Montessori’s product range enables children to discover the world independently. We only use the best materials, created with care, commitment and attention to detail. Nienhuis combines skills with technology, and has been doing so for over 85 years. Educating people is a skill. In 1975, a distribution center was opened in the United States to focus on Montessori customers in North and South America.
Nienhuis Montessori has been officially endorsed by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) for decades. It is the world’s leading brand when it comes to Montessori materials. We work with specialists from within the field of education who share our ambition.
In line with the Montessori vision, we develop materials which create a stimulating educational environment, in which the child always has a central position.
