Montessori Preschool is a subscription-based app for kids ages 3 to 7 with activities designed by certified Montessori teachers. The activities in math, language, practical life, and art align with the fundamentals of the Montessori Method: self-correction, autonomy, self-confidence, and adaptability.

An on-screen hand shows kids what to do. Some step-by-step icons may be too small for some kids to tell what they represent.
