SPECIALS
In January 2018 Michael Olaf will close. The owners/creators, Jim and Susan Stephenson, who are now in their 70's will retire. Thank you for all of your support over the years. With very few exceptions (those things that are made locally, such as the slatted chair, topponcino, and a few other hard-to-find items) as each book, toy, or tool runs out it will not be reordered. Please keep this in mind for your school ordering, gift ordering, holiday ordering.
Age 3-7: Practical Life, Real Work

Practical Life, or real work, was the favorite activity of children in that first Montessori school in Rome over 100 years ago and it remains so today. Through this important work children learn to concentrate, to follow logical steps, to perfect their attempts, to be independent, to take care of themselves, their friends and family, and the environment. Most of all they feel good about themselves, become happy, and more compassionate. In the home it is a wonderful way to spend time with the rest of the family. The selections here have been tested for many years and proven to be the best examples in each category.
