MONTESSORI + WALDORF TOYS
Montessori educational material is based on Maria Montessori's philosophy of education. Most Montessori educational material deals with learning concepts such as shape, color, size, position and movement. These toys differ from most other children's toys in that they are more abstract. The main goal of a Montessori toy is to help toddlers recognize abstract concepts that they can then apply to the real world.
Waldorf educational material is based on Rudolf Steiner's philosophy of education. This method of teaching is often more hands-on, focusing on play and development rather than academic concepts.
The main difference between the two methods is that Waldorf toys encourage free play while Montessori educational material encourages learning through structured activities.
