The app worked great at first but now it’s stuck on the same screen and I can’t reset it..... so while I initially thought this was a great program I am now left disappointed

Is It Any Good?

This app will be a fun learning experience, whether or not your kid is familiar with Montessori-style education. Most mini-games on Montessori Preschool include elements that are clearly Montessori-inspired: playing the I Spy game, using cards to match beginning letter sounds, manipulating the golden beads in math, and working on practical life skills in the classroom. What's not typically Montessori is the point rewards that kids earn to purchase items on this app, but they were included to compensate for the lack of adult feedback that would be the norm in a real Montessori classroom. Also, since this app is meant to be used regularly by kids over a long period of time, the points and store enable kids to customize their preschool and make it their own. Since some of the step-by-step instruction icons in the practical life activities are so tiny, it may be hard for some kids to discern what they represent. Overall, however, this is a great collection of educational activities that will grow with your child.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
