Know More About West Hills Montessori.

Metal Insets, Sound Cylinders, Tweezing, Trinomial Cube- what are these Montessori materials and how do they help my child learn? The Glossary of Terms is an important resource for parents to easily access short descriptions of the Montessori materials children use at school. These carefully designed and lovingly maintained materials meet the child at their level and promote exploration and discovery. They let the child feel the excitement of understanding a problem and conquering it. Montessori materials allow the children to build their own self-image, confidence, and independence.

We encourage you to refer to this Glossary on an on-going basis and welcome the opportunity to dialogue about your child’s progress through their work with the materials. Our teachers are happy to provide additional information to help you understand how each material addresses your child’s development towards independence
