It was the aim of this study to follow-up for 2 years the mathematics and daily living skills of children whose mothers participated in the Montessori training programme for mothers (MTPM) and to determine whether the children still maintained these skills 2 years after the intervention. In 2016–2017, the MTPM was administered to the mothers of 4–5-year-old children who received Montessori education at preschool. The first follow-up was carried out 6 months after the training programme was completed; the second follow-up took place 6 months after the first follow-up and the third one was carried out12 months after the second follow-up. Eleven children included in the study group in the 2016–2017 school year were all reached. ‘Basic School Skills Inventory 3 – Mathematics and Daily Living Skills subtests – Age 4–8 years’ were used for data collection. The data were provided by the teachers. Statistical analysis of the data was carried out using Wilcoxon’s signed-rank test and Statistical Package for the Social Sciences 20.0 data analysis package programme. The results showed that the MTPM maintained its effect on mathematics and daily living skills of the experimental group children 24 months after the implementation of the programme.
