What is Pikler? What is a Pikler Triangle?

Emmi Pikler was a paediatrician and child educator. She was born in 1902 and spent her early childhood in Vienna.

Pikler studied Medicine in Vienna, and received her medical degree in 1927. Her paediatric training was at the Vienna University Children’s Hospital.

Emmi and her husband decided together with the birth of their first child to allow the child freedom of movement. That they should await her development patiently. The goal being that of promoting her healthy development. Emmi Pikler saw the importance of healthy attachments for the overall well-being of the child. This would be an integrated and comprehensive approach to physical and emotional development.

The Pikler triangle and its range form the physical component to a child’s education. They stimulate movement and encourage games and role play leading to happy children.

What Age is a Pikler Triangle for?

In the normal course of events the Pikler triangle and range can be used for children as young as 6 months to approx. 4-5 years old. However the Ligneus PLAY designs have extended this range from birth to 99yrs plus.
