A calm and orderly environment is the best learning environment for a child. A Montessori placemat is an ideal tool at the table to establish order in mealtimes, even from your baby’s first meal at the table. Your child will quickly learn how to recognise and match the shapes on their placemat and, once they can walk and carry, will be able to independently set the table themselves. Place their utensils, cup, and plate in an accessible location, and they will be able to identify where each one goes easily. More importantly, the order established by the placemat models basic table manners, and supports the learning of other life skills associated with sitting at the table: the art of conversation, serving food, turn taking, etc. The optional personalisation on the placemat also aids early reading and letter recognition and familiarity with the child’s own name. Following customer feedback, we are pleased to offer this alternative international placemat layout. Also available in our Classic, Starter, and Practical Life Gift Sets.

This is not a toy; these items are for the purpose of education or decoration only and are to be used under adult supervision at all times. All our wooden products show the true and natural wood grain which varies slightly in colour between pieces, and there may be occasional seams and very minor blemishes which occur in the manufacturing process with the types of wood that we use. These do not detract away from the quality and beauty of our pieces. They are all therefore beautifully natural and truly unique to you.
