Monti Kids

85% of the brain is formed by age three; this early period is critical in shaping a child’s mind and future. Unfortunately, parents are left guessing how to create a stimulating environment during these formative years. Monti Kids brings educational play to the home, for children from birth to three, by giving parents access to the world-renowned Montessori curriculum. We provide customers with home deliveries of Montessori educational toys, tailored to their child’s stage of development. Parents gain access to our online curriculum and may contact our team of experts for personalized advice. When children outgrow Monti Kids, families have the option to enter our donation program for underserved children.
