The concept of Avery&Ruth began when I learnd that a baby’s logic and reasoning develop even before their language skills! Many studies show that 85% of everyone’s cognitive ability is formed by the age of 3.
This idea of baby’s brain development in early days seamlessly aligns with the Montessori Method, which emphasizes the importance of developing a child’s cognitive abilities from a young age. I am an enthusiast of the sensorial exploration of open-ended objects that comes from nature that enriches brain development and promotes mindfulness activities .
With a love for natural and eco-friendly materials that can be incorporated into day-to-day STEM learning-inspired activities at different development stages, children can continue using the toys to practice mindfulness meditation as they grow and shape their views about themselves, the world, and their experiences.
They learn to reframe events, regulate their emotions, and grow resilient.
We are committed to adding more earth friendly Toys and share what we learnt with fellow parents as shelter in place takes place.Do you believe what we do and want to contribute to our journal Or anything you’d like to share,do drop us a line here.
We want to help stimulate toddler and baby brain development through a wide range of disciplines through Montessori, STEM learning, Occupational Therapy, and Mindfulness Practice
