Nienhuis Producing Commemorative Material to Celebrate Montessori 150

19 August 2019

Nienhuis Montessori will be producing a commemorative Montessori material to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Maria Montessori's birth.

The material will feature a puzzle of the Maria Montessori Tulip.  The tulip has been commissioned and grown in honour of Maria Montessori and will be available for sale throughout 2020 so that Montessori schools around the world can grow the tulip.

The tulip is also widely associated with The Netherlands.  Dr Montessori lived in The Netherlands during the last years of her life and her home and adjacent building is the location of the Head Office of the Association Montessori Internationale.
