The Montessori Baby Jumper - A Modern Take on the Montessori Method

The Montessori Method requires the use of a learning environment tailored to your child's inherent curiousity. The proper learning environment allows your child to discover the inherent properties of our physical world while encouraging them to abstract thoughts on how they can manipulate their environment. That's the magic of Montessori in early childhood!

The Montessori Method is not about a pre-programmed curricula. It's about nurturing the whole child, mind, body, and soul, through self-directed exploration and joy-filled engagement. Montessori environments are beautiful, organized landscapes, filled with age-appropriate materials that ignite curiosity and invite exploration.

Think wooden puzzles, sensory trays, the classic pink tower, and..... a baby jumper??

Traditional baby jumpers often get a side-eye from classic Montessori purists, but a new Montessori inspired baby jumper is being utilized by those that have embraced the Modern Montessori Method.
