“The senses, being explorers of our world, open the way to knowledge” - Maria Montessori. 

Maria Montessori believed that human beings have not just five but eight senses: Visual, Tactile, Gustatory, Olfactory and Auditory, plus three more: baric, stereo-gnostic and thermic.  Sensorial materials used in a Montessori environment are specially designed to train each of these senses and form the foundation upon which the child will later build more accurate imaginative creations and clearer abstract ideas. 


The Montessori environment provides a wide range of sensorial materials designed to help the child develop his ability to compare and discriminate based on size, shape, weight, texture, color and temperature.
