"I wanted to present Montessori activities to my son without going insane with so much printing and laminating in the little free time I have. When our first box arrived I was so excited and relieved to see that everything was ready for me. I just needed to unpack! (yes, that's all!). Everything in the box is so well presented, clear and easy to use. My son absolutely loves every box!"

I don't have a lot of time to research all the different topics and activities to support my child's learning and it's nice to know that I can rely on these boxes for that! The topics are so varied and we will definitely be using them over the next few years. Kate." Trustpilot 2021

"The boxes are set up in a way it’s so easy to tailor to each child’s understanding and needs. My eldest tries to use cards with words while my youngest can use just the picture cards. I also enjoy sitting down with them both knowing they are both completely engaged in the same activity. That really doesn’t happen often!!!" Sarah P.

Maria Montessori observed that children learn most effectively through hands-on experiences, by engaging with the real world and utilising their five senses.

Montessori is founded upon

  • Hands-on activities
  • Reality-based activities
  • Exploration through the five senses


Furthermore, Montessori observed that children under six years old learn most effectively when they are captivated by a topic.


At this age, children naturally enjoy learning about the world around them; learning is an enjoyable and exciting experience.


Children possess an innate sense of curiosity and an absorbent mind!

Our boxes are thoughtfully created in accordance with these principles.

Emotions materials UK

It is not solely children attending Montessori schools who can reap the rewards of a Montessori education.


Maria Montessori urged parents to observe their children closely and adjust the environment, household, toys, and activities according to their child's individual needs.


Each box encompasses up to 15 activities and includes our unique learning three-part cards that reinforce your child's comprehension of the subject matter.


The topics featured in the boxes are grounded in reality and are ideal for children between the ages of 3 and 6.


My story:


If we have yet to meet, my name is Carine Robin, a Montessori teacher and child psychologist.


I first discovered Montessori 14 years ago while pregnant with my first child and working at a day nursery. From the very beginning, I applied Montessori principles with my first child whilst also undertaking training to become a Montessori teacher.


My extensive experience as a Montessori teacher in the classroom and as a Montessori school manager served as the foundation for designing the Montessori boxes.


It is also based on my own experiences as a Montessori mother of two.


When my second child was born, I struggled to find the time and energy to prepare Montessori activities for my daughter. I was disheartened by the loss of our one-on-one time together as she had previously enjoyed the educational activities I provided her.

This is when the idea of the Montessori box came to fruition!


It took me a few years to embark on this project, but I am thrilled that it now enables families from all backgrounds to provide Montessori activities in their own homes.

We launched the box in October 2018, and we have successfully shipped to over 1000 families!

"You won’t be disappointed....

I bought two subscription boxes and I could not be happier with the variety of items in each. Each box has been carefully conceptualised so that you can use the materials alone or in conjunction with other items in there. The three-part cards included are useful and clear, and designed by Carine. " Jasmine Ong, 3 minutes Montessori Blog

"We LOVE 💕 the ‘All about birds box’ we have had SO much fun already.....

 My little girl (4yrs) also follows the ‘Exploring Nature with Children’ curriculum and its actually bird week so its been a wonderful addition, we are off to a bird hide tomorrow that we have just found to see which ones we can spot! My daughter has really enjoyed learning the new names and parts of the bird. Such a great resource that I know we will use for many years to come, cant wait for next months!" Zoe C.

I have been following 

I have been following The Montessori Family for a couple of years now since I bought the Montessori e- parenting and discipline course, which are excellent and full of rich content to help you on your Montessori journey.
I have also subscribed to the monthly Montessori box. The topics are incredible and a lot of thought has gone into them.

Carine is so lovely and helpful and I’m glad we found her 😊

Amelia's 2.5 yo now and she's been showing interest in colours for the past couple of months so this box is of great help and came just on time to help us learn colours.

We've been practicing with our cards a lot but her favourite things in the box are the translucent coloured sheets and the colour chips (we've lost a green chip first day in seems to be lost forever, never to be found. I've looked everywhere for it.)

This box is the most popular so far.

"My girls have really appreciated the activities we’ve done thus far from the Frog and Pond Life box"


My girls have really appreciated the activities we’ve done thus far from the Frog and Pond Life box. I’m super excited to try out the other two boxes (Farm & Pets) with them, as well. The printables are beautiful, especially the card sets, and I love that they are able to adapted to various skill levels for both my 3- and 5-year-olds. Thanks so much for making high quality Montessori activities easily accessible for busy parents at home! :) Ashley from Hapa Family on YouTube

FAQ


What age are the subscription boxes for?

The box has been designed for children aged 3 to 6 years old. Our cards have been tested and are UKCA/CE certified. For safety reasons, we don't recommend our boxes for children under 3 as each box may contain small parts. We recommend that you supervise your child while working with the box materials.


Can I buy the box if my child is younger than 3?

Many families have subscribed to the box, in advance, to have them at their fingertip when their child is 3 and ready for them.


Can I buy the box if my child is older than 6?

Many of the topics are explored in depth with extra information. When your child can read independently, he will explore the box's content in a different way again. My own son enjoyed many topics until he was 7. As a family, we learned a lot with the space box and the emotions box is a resource that can be used by the whole family for many years. 


Can I choose the topics I will receive?

We have 24 topics and we believe you will love them all. You start your subscription with the current topic specified on the page. We update the page as soon as the next topic is ready to be shipped. When you become a subscriber, you will be told what will be the 11 next topics. Note that topics can be changed at the last minute depending on suppliers. You can skip a topic if for whatever reason, you don't want a particular one.


I don't know how to use the activities, will you help me?

Each box comes with a parent guide and dedicated webpage for our members. In addition, you can check the mini-course that shows you how to use the 3-part cards. You can also join the FB group to ask your questions and share more ideas.  I'm always happy to help you and to give you more info about Montessori. 


Can I buy a one-off box?

From time to time, we have one-off boxes available. It's only leftover boxes and one-off boxes are £30 while the subscription is £26/month. Keep an eye on the one-off boxes page to grab a past topic. 


Is it a contract or can I cancel at any time?

Our subscription makes our business sustainable, allowing us to grow and offers you a high quality product. Having said that, the subscription is not a contract. You can cancel at any time, even after the first month. 


What if I don't follow Montessori that much at home?

Our activities are based on the Montessori principles but you don't have to be 100% Montessori to introduce our box to your child. Our box is for any family who wants to offer fun and educational activities to their child. 


I'm a Montessori teacher, can I use your materials in my classroom?

Yes and in fact, many Montessori teachers are subscribers, to make their work easier in the classroom or to use the activities at home with their children. Our activities are based on the Montessori principles but you don't have to be 100% Montessori to introduce our box to your child. Our box is for any family who wants to offer fun and educational activities to their child. I only ask that you don't copy and distribute the materials outside of your own classroom or playgroup. 


I want to buy several boxes or subscription for the children in my school or playgroup, do you offer discount?

Yes, contact me to discuss your requirements. 


How eco-friendly is the Montessori Family box?

Most of our materials is paper-based. Everything is printed in the UK by companies that use FSC paper. We don't laminate to avoid unnecessary plastic. We don't have single use plastic in our boxes (such as one-time plastic based crafts). Our packaging is eco-friendly and we use paper tape. We are planning to invest in a Terracycle bin to reduce our waste. 


When you say Made in the UK, what do you mean?

All our materials are printed in the UK, designed and hand finished by us. For our crafts, we use suppliers based in the UK. Our boxes, packaging and brand stickers are also made in the UK. Whenever we can, we source as locally as possible and feed back into the local economy.

"Wow... Just wow!"

We get the subscription box and WOW just WOW! It’s extremely well laid out and easy to follow. The box is versatile so it fits both my 5 y/o and 2 y/o with helpful instructions on how to aim the activities to different ages.

The items are quality and can certainly be used again and again.

It surpassed my expectations totally.

Very happy Parent here.  Emily.R

"These boxes are amazing. My boys (3 and 5) really get excited when they arrive. But what I think they really love about them is that it’s something we can all sit down and do together..."

The boxes are set up in a way it’s so easy to tailor to each child’s understanding and needs. My eldest tries to use cards with words while my youngest can use just the picture cards. I also enjoy sitting down with them both knowing they are both completely engaged in the same activity. That really doesn’t happen often!!!

I love the step by step cards. They are easy to follow or to just dip in and out off. And I also know we will keep coming back to these boxes when relevant to their schooling or just because they want to revisit the box!

It’s just the second box but just like my boys, I am really excited for ALL the future boxes!

Thank you for creating such an amazing product! Can’t wait for the next one" Sarah P.

"What I like about the Montessori Family Box is that the materials are adaptable to your child's age, skills and, abilities..."

Although instructions are provided, you can use the materials as you like. Below we have taken one of the three-part cards on a bird hunt. I know it's likely we will find a blackbird, so I have introduced the (verbal) word 'blackbird' to Otto and we go out looking for blackbirds - and find one!! Later we could use the cards for matching or sorting and next year or even the year after Otto can use them as three-part cards. 

The materials are of high quality, they are all professionally made. The images are clear, the paper is glossy and the cards are thick. Each month the theme changes, so you can introduce them to your child or save them for when an interest arises.

"So excited to receive our first box yesterday"

". Watching the video of Carine and her adorable son using the activities, I can see we'll be able to use these again and again in so many different ways. Absolutely thrilled she has done the hard work for me and I now have the tools we need to bring Montessori in our home in a truly educational way." Claire S.

"I'm really impressed by quality of the three part cards and the pictures cards"

"Absolutely loving this subscription box. The first box includes materials and guides to explore shapes. I'm really impressed by quality of the three part cards and the pictures cards. They are very strong and will definitely last for years to come. There are also extra printables resources available to accompany the box and ideas to use household items to extend the learning opportunities. Everything is clearly explained box on instruction cards and video demo online. It's clear a lot of time and thought has gone into the box and we are very exited for future deliveries."
