Practical life is essential to a successful Montessori curriculum because this is where the process of developing foundational skills critical for lifetime success and happiness begins. Independence, competence, and cultivation of concentration are just a few of the benefits of integrating practical life into your homeschool curriculum.
Practical Life is the place to begin for very young children or any child new to Montessori at home. This is because it is designed to quiet and focus the child's mind in the home environment, thus setting the stage for a functional homeschool experience.
M3 by Multisori's Practical Life curriculum provides opportunities for kids to feel independent, capable, and to develop both fine and gross motor skills as they engage in real-world activities.
Our Practical Life curriculum is self-contained, so you don't need any special products to use it.

With our Practical Life curriculum, you can quit the overwhelm and set the stage for a lifetime of success.
