How to create a Montessori space at home

montessori toy

Montessori education is an educational method that encourages autonomy, independence and self-esteem in children . For parents who want to provide their child with an environment like this at home it may seem intimidating, but it doesn't have to be difficult.

Here's how to create a Montessori space at home for your child.

Creating a Montessori space at home

The Montessori space must be well prepared to allow the child to explore and learn. To do this, it is essential to choose a quiet and secure area where the child can explore safely.

  • The environment : The first element to take into account is the environment in which the child grows. It must be calm, orderly and adapted to its size and abilities. This means that furniture and objects must be at his height, so that he can reach and use them without help.

  • Freedom : Freedom is another key principle of Montessori philosophy. The child must be allowed to choose his activities and learn at his own pace. This means he needs access to a variety of toys and tools, which allow him to explore the world in his own way.

  • Respect for the child : Finally, the Montessori philosophy is based on respect for the child as an individual. He must be considered as a full human being, with his own desires, his own needs and his own ideas.

The key elements of the Montessori space

To create a Montessori space at home, several key elements must be taken into account:

  • Activities : The activities offered must be adapted to the age and interests of the child. These can be construction games, puzzles, books, musical instruments, etc.

  • Furniture : Furniture must be chosen according to the size of the child. This could be a table and chairs at its height, a low shelf for storing toys, etc.

  • Space layout : The space must be organized so that the child can move around easily and have access to everything he needs. You can start by dividing your space into different zones, such as a play zone, a work zone, and a rest zone.

  • Toys : they must be simple and designed to stimulate the child's senses. The materials must be natural like the beech wood arch and easy to handle to allow the child to develop their fine motor skills, especially with small musical accessories . Baby will simply be able to manipulate them and develop his senses.

  • Music : it can also play an important role in this space. Children are naturally drawn to sounds and music can help them focus and relax. Musical instruments, such as the xylophone, flute or drum, can be integrated into the Montessori space.
