  • Children’s House Gift Giving Guide

    The leaves are falling and the cooler weather is hinting of the holiday season approaching.  During this time of the year, parents of children who attend Montessori schools find themselves researching engaging and enriching items for gifting during the holidays.  Searching for toys that support the child’s development can be an overwhelming exercise for parents. We would like to offer AMS families a few ideas to use when selecting items for children’s gifts.
