Michael Olaf Montessori Books & DVD's
Untitled Document

For over 30 years Michael Olaf has provided the best quality and selection of toys, books, and other educational materials for children from birth to 7+ years. The selections are made by qualified Montessori teachers. Michael Olaf ships all over the world and is well-known for excellent service. In order to focus on Birth to Three (the Michael Olaf international specialty) at the end of 2013 we stopped carrying materials for 6-12. Soon we will stop carrying most 3-6 materials as well. ANYTHING MARKED 'ON SALE' IN THE 3-6 AREA, NOW AND IN THE COMING WEEKS, WILL BE DISCONTINUED WHEN CURRENT STOCK IS GONE.

THE FIRST YEAR: A Gentle Beginning

During the first year of life, when the child begins to build his or her experience of the world, we can help build feelings of security and trust by handling the infant in the most gentle way, speaking softly, and providing support for visual and eventually physical exploration of the child's room, home, and world.
