It’s based on the teachings of Maria Montessori, harnessing the different senses to heighten the cognitive experience and using the three-period method to promote natural, spontaneous learning.
Sensory Stimulation: The Baby Flashcards are made of shaped card with insets to stimulate the sense of touch. They also stimulate visual perception as the children recognise and remember the pictures. At the same time, the Baby Flashcards are a useful way of teaching additional concepts like the sounds of words.
Three Period Lesson: This method is ideal for younger children as a way to introduce new concepts, like names, sounds, numbers, shapes, colours and so on. There are three stages to the learning process, detailed in the Instructions but listed as follows: Words and Pictures, Sorting Game, and My First Discoveries.
