Making Montessori materials is all about little things. We compare it with steering a ship, where a deviation of only one degree can eventually result in moving in exactly the opposite direction. So a deviation of one degree can eventually prevent you from reaching your final destination. This is the same when we are raising and educating young children. In this task too, little things can make a big difference and Nienhuis Montessori cares about those little things!
When we make materials we know exactly what Dr. Montessori meant by:
1. The materials have to entice activity, in other words, the materials have to be very beautiful and in a perfect state so that they seem to 'invite' the child.
2. The materials have to isolate one single quality, in other words, a child may not be distracted by poor quality that will affect the intense concentration of a child.
3. There has to be a very strict and precise control of error so that a child is able to discover all the keys by himself.
4. The materials have to serve the concept of cosmic education, in other words, the interrelation between all the materials has to be guaranteed.
