I thought you might like to take a peek into our Montessori home environment! This is my four year old’s work area. He goes to a Montessori school but when he is at home, this is where he will do his investigations; this is where he will do his work.
We have child size table with colourful stools. A reading chair in the corner. Just out of the photographs is a child’s bookshelf full of books.
You can see we have a couple of shelving units. The shelving contains lots trays and baskets of puzzles and interesting games, puppets, stamps and natural materials.
I love to have a world globe, microscope and mini skeleton on the shelves too.
Also just out of the picture is our music player with a few of my children’s favourite CDs and a basket of musical instruments.
For our Montessori home environment I want to create an atmosphere where the child feels comfortable and loved. I want an environment that is interesting, intellectually stimulating with lots of natural elements.
Do you have a Montessori area or children’s work area at home?
