The First Year of Life
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: Unique Development, The Child's Self-respect

Every child has his (or her) own unique timetable, sometimes working on developing the whole body, sometimes the hands, sometimes speech. The most important thing is to accept him exactly as he is at the moment, without rushing, or comparing/competing with others.
