Schleich animal figurines ignite the natural curiosity of a child, tickle the imagination, invite adventure, and inspire learning. That’s why we’ve partnered with the American Montessori Society to support independent, engaged, and self-motivated learning.

On this page, you’ll find learning resources created with AMS to aid teachers in the classroom and to support continued learning at home.
